Up, down, up, down.
True XC. Great descents followed by many climbs. Heart rate will explode.
Near the end of the trail (before the last descent) is a section of trail often called the Spirit World.
If chasing a KOM or racing, that section will make you breathe out of your ears and your heart scream for mercy.

       Rode June 6, 2015. Nice and dry and in great shape. Saw 3 bears. Cool.

       Rode this Dec 30th. Was one of the greenest, mossiest, pretty trails I've ever ridden. Makes excellent use of the terrain. It's got peaks, valleys, little ponds, walls of moss, tight corners, tricky climbs, everything. Such an excellent XC trail.
