I feel like someone needs to say it... this trail is not great for mountain bikes. Hiking, sure. But riding a river of loose, jagged, various sized, slippery, steep rock garden is not that fun, unless you love pain. I enjoyed the challenge for about a mile, but after mile 4 of nothing but rock, it gets a little redundant. I come from the loamy, tacky, redwood goodness of the Santa Cruz area, so I may be biased. It wasn't that I couldn't do it- my lungs were fine. But getting back down was a bumpy, arm shakin', almost crash a thon- AND I took my Enduro out there. Views were amazing though. I saw nothing but hikers, no other riders- I went in March. If you're visiting and want to ride, I would try somewhere that is ride specific.
