This trail is steep in both directions. No matter which way you take the trail you'll need to hike your bike up a steep rock face. Some of the steep rock faces have very little run offs and make the Big Stupid on Ladies Only (Fromme Mt.) look like a ride in the park. On the south end of the trail you'll find unmarked trails that'll need further exploration. What's nice are the short steep descents that can prepare you for the much bigger ones but you'll need intestinal fortitude and a good medical plan (or the gizzly encounter suit from Project Grizzly) to even attempt the steep rock on this trail. As for the singletrack, it's tight with drops and logs to navigate. Have fun on this one and ride with a buddy.
