The lower section is fairly tough to climb or descend
This would be a VERY difficult climb.
Some riders will agree that Blue Ribbon is a very fun way to end a ride on this trail system.
It's rideable by most intermediate/advanced riders except for a few walkable sections. For more advanced riders, there are tons of small drops, rock launch ramps, and technical moves to make this a highlight of your entire ride here.
The upper half of the trail where it intersects with Skeeter's Ridge Trail and Roller Coaster was re-routed in 2017 and is now an easy climb to access Mushroom Rock and the top of Red Hill.
