First of all, the aerobic level of this trail is not easy or moderate. The person who wrote that is smoking something illegal. I've been riding a lot for 10 years; it is most definitely not an easy trail in that regard.
If you like singletrack, don't ride this trail. If you want killer views in the spring or summer, don't ride this trail. If you want to be technically challenged, don't ride this trail. If you want a workout, ride this trail.
Basically, I wouldn't go out of my way to ride this again. The ups were way up and steep and the down's, while fast, weren't challenging except for the new loose gravel placed before several turns. I believe that climbs are the price we pay for fun descents...it wasn't worth it here.
