I'm learning to like this trail, as I get fitter and just haul up it. I usually ride it from N to S, uphill. There is no good reason to come down it.
I basically use it to access the rest of the network, and it allows me to ride down Birdhouse on the way back, which is awesome!
Tunnel is not too exciting, it's a slog going up, with not much to make it interesting. A little limestone shelf here and there.
Down the other side into Otero Canyon is a little better. There are a few medium sized drops, with mostly smooth riding in between.
This trail gets a TON of traffic. Probably because it's easy and tall. And even though it doesn't get too far it, It feels like a big back-country route in some places.
I just don't find it that interesting compared to the other stuff nearby.
