BIG hills, lots of easy to rock gardens. My first try here, I was spent b4 starting the, unreasonable, climb at the start, then bailed less then a mile in. What goes down must come up. To be fair the start (CW) flows a bit, it's about five steep gravelly climbs with short flat spots in between. If you keep going you'll drop some then climb for almost 2 miles, before descending near the Dam/Spillway area. That's not the end of it, the rest is 80% double track with more steep up and downs and a nice little stream to ford near end. Reversing it you avoid the steepest climbing, but it's still physically challenging. I also like that iron mtn is just 3-4 miles from I-30. Killer :D No one should be scarred off if they're up for hills, technically nothing more then strong beginner level.
