Probably not for beginner biking. Took the trail counterclockwise. approx 1st 2miles = Long inclining grade on medium track covered with 1" gravel; next mile is downward slope and rocky through beautiful rhodedendrum and hemlock along flat creek had to walk bike down a couple of sections; crosses flat creek near large campsite and narrows slightly the remainder of the way with gradual inclining to moderately steep grade. The more experienced are likely to really enjoy this workout. Also would make a great hike. We were beginners and will likely go for a less challenging track without so many rocks next time.

It was OK. I happen to enjoy high speed and this one was difficult to gain any speed. The rocky descents were treacherous especially with the leaves fallen. The climbs were challenging but not that bad.

A fun rolling dowhill through the forest, w/some good views at the beginning. Climb at the end is steep, but short.

We hiked the loop and I must say it was well worth the trip to Aska. We did not even see another person until we were leaving (@10:00 am).

The trail is well marked and it is a very nice medium distance hike.

If you get the chance, hike or bike (it does seem quite technical) this trail!
