Rideable both ways, better southbound, and either way most riders will have to walk some of the climbs. The rest of terrain is rolling and physically easy, but at a solid intermediate-to-hard technical level. Covenant's two bridges are narrow, slippery when wet, and a long way down.

Work is being done to deal with drainage and erosion. Work will continue over the week on some of the woodwork that was sitting in standing water.

 I'd rate the trail as 1 star if it wasn't for the waterfalls. They're worth checking out, and raise the rating of the trail to 2 stars.

 One of the favorites. From north to south. Then connect to 4play and finish with the rock slabs on lower 4play. Such a fun loop. Covenant is a beautiful trail with ups and downs, roots, small rock rolls, and everything to challenge an intermediate rider or fun to shred for advanced riders who love the climb as much as the downhills.
