    Can be ridden, but clearly designed for hiking. Does not flow well and there are multiple narrow, off-camber sections that are not fun to ride. Needs work to be a legit MTB trail.

    This is a very challenging trail. Lots of rocks, roots and steep, technical climbs. Most descents are controlled. This is not a flowy trail. The trail is poorly marked and the map received was useless. Finding your way around is a bit of an adventure. Regardless, I plan to return.

    Some places are great, some are barely there. It's a very rocky trail and quite narrow in places. There are several areas where the trail disappears and it's easy to get off track. The trail is not very well marked but was clear for the most part.
