    I ended up on it accidentally last weekend (hey-I'm new-what do I know). GREAT trail, I really enjoyed it. While it is ENTIRELY unsuited to a tyro (which I am)-and even with the "oh god I'm going to die parts-and the 2 hills I ended up walking up-it was worth it. Some wonderful views-and LOADS of fun-even if my average speed was probably 2 MPH. LOL

    Fun narrow and challenging single track with a few steep climbs.
