Tree Spring is an extremely difficult trail. It's bordering between black and double black, and I couldn't totally decide, so it gets double. If others disagree, please edit it up!
Fraught with a plethora of technically challenging rocky sections and some serious steeps, Tree Spring is not for the average rider, but instead a good choice for a seasoned veteran who wants a good challenge, both skill-wise and cardio-wise. Coming down is also quite the endeavor, as you will find yourself questioning your abilities multiple times. This is a trail on which to take caution, not just for the difficulty, but also because it is a popular hiking trail, and any day you go will usually yield multiple encounters. Remember your manners and enjoy!
