This trail starts right out with some really steep climbing. It gradually gets more and more rocky. Not loose rocks, strong embedded rocks that you can negotiate if you are skilled on a bike. One big rock outcropping is a really tough section, and there are a couple places you will probably hike your bike. Going down this trail is outrageous fun, but watch for hikers, they frequent the trail.
