I rode this after I, um, "bailed out" on the Buttermilk trail near the Reedy Creek entrance. Buttermilk way WAY too advanced for me. Forest Hill was better, but still, very very technically challenging. I had a few "oh %*#&" moments on Forest Hill, but nothing bad. There are some nasty hairpin switchbacks and some very steep downhill sections.
In a nutshell: I like Forest Hill better than Buttermilk for my skill level and MTB experience.
I would say Buttermilk since it's so close by, but only if your ready for it.
