       Only rode the last third up, but if the bottom is the same, it's a great up trail. Well built and maintained. Nice work.

       About the least efficient climbing trail you can imagine, I swear it goes downhill more than it goes uphill. Great trail if you're out for a meander, if you're looking to get to the top in any sort of reasonable amount of time though skip it.
