As people will tell you, this is two trails. The first 6 miles is super easy. Take your non-mountain biking pal there as an intro. 6 miles along a river, 30 foot wide graded dirt road, 3/4 % grade max, can run into mountain goats/sheep.
At the top of the road, there is a wonderful Dam. Worlds biggest mist air-conditioner. Really pretty. Some picknic tables on the way up.
When you get to the top, things get serious. A lot of selections from a "little" 4 mile loop with serious climbs/rocks, technical descents. A fairly long 24 mile loop which I haven't attempted. Plenty for everyone. About 1.5 hours with the short loop at the top and lots of fun.
