The southern end of the trail is a gradual grind up a wide trail, almost a road, with next to nothing to slow you down except the grade. Once you reach the top and the Wilderness access for the Pino Trail, you'll come upon some very large boulders to ride over tucked in some trees.
After the rocks, things smooth out again and the trail narrows to actual singletrack. A couple of short climbs and some fast fun descents follow before this trail hits a fork/T-intersection. Trail 230
is to the right and 230a is to the left.
