Not sure why there aren't more reviews, and currently half the reviews don't sound like they even actually rode the full trail or even the top section.
Rode it for the first time yesterday and man, what an epic ride. Starting from castle valley it isn't much of a climb to the top, then several miles of mixed flowing single track wth rock gardens varying from short and / or easy to long and / or extremely technical. Anyone who rides all the rock sections totally dab-free is impressive In my book. After the mostly flat /up and down of the rock garden ridge section, you get to summit lake which is awesome and then there's a nice long stretch of double track downhill that can be completely railed. After that, the tight single track descent to below Tahoe donner is some seriously epic and thrilling downhill, flows very well but has a couple tight turns you need to watch out for if its your first ride. Really a fantastic trail, covers all different styles of riding. If you are a big fan of Hole in the Ground, then you'll definitely love the DLRT.
