Just tried to ride this trail. I started at the south end and did not make it all the way. I stopped around the 3k mark. The trail is a real challenge. The technical uphills turn into technical downhills. This wouldn't be so bad however these sections are loaded with lots of loose rocks. The traction going downhill was not good and climbing was truly difficult. That being said the level sections and the slight incline/decline sections are fantastic. Not enough of them to make this worth the effort. I look forward to hiking this trail in the near future. Going to leave the bike at home. This trail needs quite a bit of work to make suitable for mountain biking without hycling.
