This trail features 3 steep sections, it's very narrow in parts, and has rocks and roots to trip you up.

This is a single diamond trail, with 2 double diamond sections (the first has a single diamond ride around to rider's left).

Be careful exiting the trail to the parking lot, that segment is very steep and loose and you risk flying over the hoods of cars :-p
