Very challenging trail for me, I'm used to less steep single track and road riding. The first 1.5 miles is a steep winding rocky climb from goldmine trailhead. When you've reached "the bench" you've essentially finished the hard part of the climb from goldmine.
The climb is worth the reward, forward from the bench is some nice downhill and moderate climbs, this trail is a MUST VISIT if you live near it!
Make sure to give the hikers and horse riders warning, I tend to slow down and make my presence known so i don't roll through them and 20mph coming down hill.
