Southern Half: Rode this half (Evergreen Mountain) of the trail network counter-clockwise in late October. I thought it was a short, but pretty solid Beginner to Intermediate (with 2-3 Advanced obstacles) trail. I went with my wife who is Beginner-Intermediate and she enjoyed it.
Northern Half: A different feels than the Southern Half. I rode in a clockwise fashion from Ponderosa-Silver Fox-Homestead-Mountain Muhly-Bearberry-Sisters. Here's some quick feedback. Mountain Muhly isn't worth a mountain biker's time - too loose and sandy with only one fun small section on the East side - stick to Bearberry. Ponderosa, Bearberry, and Sisters rock. Ride Sisters downhill for Advanced technical terrain. Ponderosa and Bearberry have some solid but fun climbing. I highly recommend putting the Southern and Northern half of the trail together in a figure 8 loop for the best mix of terrain.
