When this trail is dry, it's great- after a significant rain it's a total washout and not worth your time. I'm an advanced rider with a homemade 9-speed hardtail 29er, and here are some observations:
Leave gears 5 through 27 at home, you won't need them.
There are some nice technical spots- skinny crossings, bridges, lots of deep sand, roots galore, but no rock gardens.
An intermediate rider can tackle it with a decent hybrid, and a heavy bike won't be much of a hindrance.
If A Loop is dry, go ahead and do B Loop; if you do C Loop, you should go ahead and do D Loop.
There are some quick stretches on C and D, and plenty of opportunities to crash into trees, if that's your thing.
