The trail is in good condition and a good portion winds through the trees. However, there's rarely a rest from the incline, all the way to Big Springs. It's not a terrible amount of elevation change, but it was hard to maintain a decent pace. I haven't been on my bike much recently and have been under the weather, so that likely affected me. Still, getting to the springs had me pushing the bike more than I like. I'll have to hit this trail again to see if it's just a matter of me getting my bike legs back or not.
The downhill is quite fun and you can get a lot of speed, but that means that it's over quickly due to the lack of technical terrain. There are some technical parts, which offer variety, but not much. I prefer a more intermediate trail that's flatter.
