“Mostly good intermediate singletrack but a long steep hike near the end detracts a bit.”

Description
Rawhide starts off with smooth, wide doubletrack that rolls just a bit until you hit a campground and the intersection with Waterhole. Turn left on singletrack and encounter some moderately challenging waterbars that will be rideable by confident intermediates. Contour around a hill on nice, fairly easy trail with great scenery.

You'll pass the other end of Waterhole, and continue on good singletrack until you start descending steeply to a creek bottom. Many people will want to dismount for a few short sections. Once at the creek bottom, there is a half mile of very steep trail with large waterbars. Most people will walk most of this section.

Doing the trail the other way will get the steep sections over with faster, but it's not really better either direction.

This would be an intermediate trail if it were not for the long hike near the end.
