Review: Super duper duper fun. Some pretty big exposure and definitely very challenging downhill. Loops up really well with easier stuff to climb and gorgeous red woods.

Review: I really enjoyed the riding here. Not difficult mostly rolling terrain through redwoods. It is quite a spaghetti bowl of trails and navigation can be difficult. Dense forest with tons of poison oak so be aware.
