       I'm glad I completed this trail, but riding it clockwise did not seem to have much pay off for the amount of climbing I did. Rocky, tight terrain kept climbing speeds slow at times and part of the descent is fire road w/out any hazards/jumps. Scenery is very pretty though but trail seems more like a tight hiking path then a MTB trail at times.
