The trail includes a good variety of steep uphills and downhills with plenty of sand, rocks, logs, and roots to get in the way. Mastery of this trail would require great technique skills and endurance. For the inexperienced, you can push your bike up some hills, carefully walk down others, take breaks, and allow more experienced riders to pass.
