Fooled me during the first half of the trail. Mostly flat and smooth track until you hit Cloud 9. This is more technical and a lot more challenging. The beginning (before cloud 9) has a lot of "double diamond" markings throughout, which is completely unnecessary. They'll warn you of small logs in the ground, definitely not double diamond. Sometimes it'll indicate double diamond or difficult feature ahead and there'll literally be nothing. This could be fixed. Not that their isn't difficult features, because there definitely is!! Also, once in Cloud 9, there are a few random tangents that go off on their own and makes you wonder if you're missing things. They're not marked at all. Just slightly confusing.
The trail is on the east side of the road, to the right of the bike shop. Park across the street at the boat shop. I couldn't find any other parking, unless you went down Mala Compra Rd towards the beach.
Overall, a nice trail and can definitely challenge you. There are a few technical things that could be adjusted (random double diamond and difficult feature indicators, scattered trails). I will definitely be back to ride again.
