This is a difficult trail that has riders saying "At least I finished it" at the end of the ride. Loose gravel, steep uphills and massive elevation gain. Also used by horses and hikers, so be courteous and watch out for rough sections of trail due to horses. Beautiful scenery at the tops of the hills. The downhills are technical and require concentration at all times. The trail is relatively well marked, but take a map with you and be careful. Keep to the left at trail intersections.
