Did it twice, clockwise and counterclockwise.
In the second option the climbs are very, very tough.
Jul 21, 2018
Clockwise was great. Fun, techy downhill. The downhill seems more feature-rich and the climbs more gradual going clockwise.

Rode today with Amelia... rob and Brian went before us... it kicked their ass... and mine!
Jul 7, 2018
Did two laps - one in either direction. Prefer clockwise until I’m in better shape.
Jul 6, 2018
For being an intermediate Rider is bad shape this trail was still do able and fun! Walked some that could be ridden if in better shape. Beautiful!
Jun 26, 2018
Looks decent. Not to busy in the afternoon. Neat area. Slow painful drive up the mountain but worth it
Jun 3, 2018
Chain snapped just over half way through, awesome ride regardless
May 27, 2018
My first time here. Very nice trail. I did it CCW!
May 15, 2018
Last time I rode this was about 10 years ago. Awesome ride, but coming from sea level, the hills and altitude really made me work for it!
Apr 26, 2018
Few small puddles
Apr 22, 2018
Lots of hikers on the weekend. Conditions were Hero dirt perfect.
Apr 21, 2018
Most clear, gorgeous rushing streams, mostly dry with very few, small mud spots.
Nov 18, 2017
Went CW. Nice descent right out of the gate. The ascents were long and difficult to ride smoothly. Second descent near the end was also fun.
Nov 12, 2017
Little icy. I went clockwise. Great ride.
Aug 25, 2017
CW. Wet in the usual spots.
Aug 21, 2017
Clockwise is more fun, but counter is a good technical climbing workout
Aug 14, 2017
Love this trail can really push you. Love rating: 4.5/5 physical: 4.5 technical 3 to 4 with some 5. super playful singletrack with breaks on the...

CLOCKWISE IS MUCH BETTER THAN COUNTERCLOCKWISE!!!
Jul 18, 2017
Counter clockwise is probably not the best way to go. I'd go clockwise next time. Walking down steps didn't make sense to me.
Jul 9, 2017
Counter clockwise. Lots of hike a hike on the east side. Slower flow
Jun 24, 2017
Trail dry and sandy in parts. Great riding conditions though!
Jun 16, 2017
started at 645pm...perfect lighting to finish the ride right before sundown
Jun 15, 2017
Did the loop counterclockwise. Pretty difficult sections in some places. Other sections require carrying the bike up and out of the Ravine. Overall...
Jun 4, 2017
Went in the reverse direction. Climbed the steep stairs.
May 31, 2017
CCW? Never again! Long descent from the SW parking NOT worth all the walking. MUCH prefer to ride the steeps downhill. Buy low gears if you disagree.
May 29, 2017
Rowdy descends of the steepest parts when going clockwise. I prefer starting at Ethel Harrold for CW direction (9 mi).
May 6, 2017
Went Counter clockwise, fun decent the 1 hill then another fun decent, then walk bike downhill, then a really big climb, then a short decent. Good ...
Apr 18, 2017
Clockwise is definitely better. But I think I'm going to do counterclockwise there and back and stop at the stairs. Seems a much better path. Adds ...
Apr 17, 2017
Went counter-clockwise. Walked my bike up the entire last hill it was so steep. Am going to try it clockwise tomorrow.
Might be my favorite trail now
Apr 12, 2017
Great descents but the flow of the entire trail is killed by brutal climbs and a massive hike a bike.
Dec 4, 2016
flat tire halfway through forgot my repair kit
Nov 13, 2016
Hard crash on rocks right before the hike-a-bike down.
Oct 22, 2016
Clockwise - just went in 2.3 miles
Sep 17, 2016
CCW. The trailhead sign said 871 ft of elevation gain...

Aug 13, 2016
That was pretty damn hard.
Jul 9, 2016
Rode counter-clockwise from Coal Creek Canyon/Gross Dam Rd. trailhead. A beast of a ride, tough climbs, fun descents.
Jun 25, 2016
Rode counter-clockwise. Tough climbs. Walked a bit. Fun trail with some nice coverage at times. Sketchy hike-a-bike.
May 21, 2016
new parking lot to trail above fire road to hike up and clockwise.
Oct 12, 2015
Did it both ways. Prefer riding it clockwise.
Aug 3, 2015
This trail kicked my ass haha, but I loved every minute of it! I think I rode it the wrong way as everyone else was going in the opposite direction.
Jul 21, 2015
Spectacular area and trail! Lots of super fun and flowy downhill, with lots of equally difficult and arduous climbs!
Jun 30, 2015
Awesome! A little more hjike a bike than I expected
Jun 13, 2015
Lots of walking. Go counter clockwise.
Jun 13, 2015
If you walk some spots, it can be a blue-black. If you ride most spots, it is definitely black (for me). I ate it once. Came out OK. Bit humbled.
Jun 12, 2015
pretty brutal with a decent amount of mandatory hike a bike
Apr 12, 2015
Found it hard to get a good rhythm on this ride.
Aug 17, 2014
wooped me good with the technical sections. Very torn up track. some great flowing single track heading counter clockwise right after the second (s...
Jul 24, 2014
Rode Counter-clockwise, last climb is steep and hard in this direction! will try clockwise nextime, but going up the cliff stairs will be a challenge
Jun 28, 2014
Hard trail for me as I'm a sparse mtb'er. SUPER fun trail though with great scenery, awesome downhill, and challenging climbs.
May 28, 2014
Bucky the GREAT
Great ride. Went counter clockwise. Fast going down. Lots of trees and flowers. Great soaking spot by hike-n-bike.
Apr 20, 2014
Note to self: get knobby tires!
