Like Greg said, bunch of climbing. The views are gorgeous, and the climbs are not, wait ...I like climbing, because what goes up, must come down and YEAH it does! About a 1,000ft up in a mile in a half is about right, but it's soooo worth it. There is some riding to it and a little downhill, the flow is nice, even the climb. Take your time and get a snack at the top by the sign. The second time isn't as bad as the first. ;-) The descent is shred city!!! Keep the seat down and rip it up, your breaks will get warm, well HOT! But so are you as you're ripping this place up. The second creek crossing is the gap jump (if I remember right), but the lip was busted up as of Aug 30, 2015. Pretty sweet place. One of my favorite parts of The Whole Enchilada as it averages an 11% grade. You'll be hootin' out of epic pleasure for sure as you're shooting down the trail. Bring a light jacket for rain and wind. It's much cooler up here, just in case. I needed it the first day, but not the second. This part is amazing!!
