Not difficult, but a beautiful trail to ride because of the diversity. The trail traverses interesting juniper trees surrounding by large areas of cryptobiotic soil. It feels like you are riding your bike through a massive Japanese Zen garden with a desert mesa feel. Really is between easy and intermediate.
