With an initial steep challenging incline you really earn the short downhill that follows after which the trail quickly gets you working again on some more lengthy uphill sections before finally rewarding you with a long downhill finish.

 Unless I'm missing something, this is not a legit trail, let alone a black graded trail! Don't waste your time coming here...
