This is a unique trail, but I don't understand the hype.
Currently, this trail is a route-finding mess. The blazes indicating the path down the ribbon itself have been removed so unless you know the exit this can be difficult.
Once below the ribbon the trail generally follows a washes, but the wash exits are difficult to spot at descending speed. So, heads up - this trail required your attention.
At the end of the ribbon you can connect to Andy's Loop, or hike-a-bike up to Park Road. It's ~600 in half a mile. It's awful and it probably best only as a bail- out option. From the road to can connect to a number of descents.
I road the loop beginning and ending a Tab. TH. The 5-6 miles up park road is a change of pace, but it's black pavement so probably best to avoid it in the height of summer.

Former local, long time area rider, never faulted the trail for crossing the road. Route-finding concern is to advise uninitiated riders to the peculiarity of the trail system.
