Very fun! I'm a beginner and I didn't have any problems on the 9 mile loop other than having to walk up a few of the hills. Being a beginner, I skipped the Black Diamond sections just to be safe. There are many jumps, but they all have bypasses. For south Mississippi, the climbs can be a bit long, but they are rewarded with some really fun, fast downhill sections. There are roots, but nothing too bad, even on a hardtail. The bridges and wooden berms make the track loads of fun! Overall, well worth the 2 hour drive. I'll definitely be riding this trail again!
As far as technical difficulty, about the same as Comite in Baton Rouge, although Comite's climbs are short and steep whereas Zion's are long and not as steep.
