Review: This scenic trail is mostly smooth and fast rolling singletrack. Because of all the shade from trees this ride is pleasant even in hotter temps. There are a few easy bridge crossings and short root and rock sections that are a nice challenge for newer bikers. The climbing is sustained but rarely very steep. There are a few trail options in the area with some fun flowing descents possible.

Review: Some rock gardens and root patches but overall mostly dirt. It's a climb from the parking lot to where it ends at the cascade saddle trail fork. That's where I turned around. I'm a straight up beginner and the constant climb was challenging (about 30 min) but going back down was fun. You get some speed, just watch out for hikers. Took about 10 min to get down. Fun trail overall and for someone who has literally never mountain biked before and using a second hand hard tail, I found it extremely manageable and fun

Review: 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.

Review: This is a good after work ride. Easy to get to and the trail is always in good condition. There are a couple challenging spots and the downhill is fun.
