The first part of the trail is a constant moderate uphill climb, with a few spots of some refreshing downhill coasting. There is a very nice view after a short, extremely steep hill, and a fun downhill ride after that. However, it would be wise to check the level of the creeks around the time of the trip. Our loop was cut short because we couldn't cross the creek about 6 miles into the loop, and we had to trek back uphill for a while before we could ride back to the beginning. If the creek isn't too flooded, it's an exceptional ride. oh, and the directions aren't very accurate, so don't follow them exactly. Overall though, a fun experience!
