This cross country trail has a mix of temperate zones. It's about 70% singletrack and 30% fire road. The trail is rolling singletrack with a few flat riding areas - you're usually always climbing or descending. It's very scenic and remote for a foothills ride with no visible homes, roads or signs of civilization for most of the ride.

It's really no easier or harder in either direction, making it a fine out and back.
