This is an out and back ride. The ride out is steep and sustained. The ride down is fast and has some technical rocky spots and sharp switch backs. You get an amazing view of Lake Cachuma

There are hikers on this trail, especially on the weekend, so please ride with a bell.

      No mud at all on the trail. Creek is running pretty good so be ready to cross it. Hero dirt after the rain fall. It was a great ride up and down...

       Herrooo dirt after the rain fall, lower portion you have to cross the creek to get to trail. You will need to follow red pin flags and it will lead you to the start of the trail. The climb is brutal if you’re not in shape like me lol. Downhill was awesome. You can shuttle it or ride up it. Only 1 hiker on the way down so that was perfect. Overall it was a 10/10
