Some good climbing, your climbing off and on (mostly on) for about 7 miles. Then you hit the continuous downhills, first single track then fire road. Both are fun, you can catch some good air on fire road errosion berms. I did the trail in December, so the leave made it a bit more difficult, especially the steep climbs. Bring a map, most of the trail intersections are not marked, making it very difficult to find your way. I, much like the other reviewers, got lost a few times and had to do some extra loops.

good trail but sometimes they have hunting season on the trail so watch out for that or call the city to get the dates of the hunting season

This is a good trail for intermediate-level riders. It's a combo of single-track and fire roads. A couple of good climbs will leave you breathing hard. I had a problem with finding my way (it's more than a loop). I duplicated parts and missed some of the trail altogether. Don't go after a heavy rain.

I personally preferred Bear Creek, but this one was very good. There were a lot more difficult obstacles to navigate than the rating on this trail would make you think. It's rated the same as Bear Creek, but is clearly more difficult. Still a lot of fun.

I have ridden the trail twice. Once using the recommended counter-clockwise route and once the clockwise route. The counter-clockwise route is definitely a lot more fun to ride. The first half of the trail has a lot of tough climbs and the whole trail has a lot of loose rocks and roots (it's a mountain bike course so I realize it is supposed to have those things). The trail is pretty easy to follow, especially with the trail guide from trails.com. My favorite part about the trail is that you feel like you in in the mountains for most of the ride (being from the midwest almost anything is a mountain to me).

Hard to get to in a car. A great climb of 5.0 miles to start. Then just fast single and double track to mile post 8.8. From their, if you have any energy left on a 95 degree day, I encourage you to do the Doopsee Doo (alias the shortcut). More climbing but a quick downhill to single track and to the finish for a cold Budweiser.

The climb takes it out of you so eat right the night before and intake plenty of carbohydrates.
