I road this trail up and down when the Beall Trail was closed on a day of riding all over Emerald. Everything said this was a trail better for descending and to ride the Beall trail up, so I was worried this may not be great for climbing, however I thought it was an awesome climb. Nothing really too difficult at all. No insanely steep spots at all. A little bit of gravel but nothing terrible. Kept waiting for the really hard part, but it never came. The downhill was great as well. The views in my opinion are better than the from side of Emerald because there are less tress and more exposure.
