“A grind of a climb on a loose trail surface - not a preferred option.”
— Michael Ahnemann
This isn't a trail you should go out of your way to ride unless you like to beat yourself up. It climbs steeply right out of the gate, and the trail surface is often loose, amping up your already skyrocketing heart rate. It looks as though this is more commonly used by dirt bikes than mountain bikes.
After the climbing ends, you'll have a short, fast descent with a tiny creek running along the trail, and even becoming part of the trail for a stretch. Then you'll intersect with Tipperary
, which is a much more enjoyable way to climb than Backscratch.
