“Best ridden S to N, this black diamond turns into a double black that is an awesome challenge.”— Kennard Yamada
It's best ridden south-to-north to take advantage of its overall downward gradient. The southern end is single black diamond rated and honestly barely earns that. The trail turns into a double black, and it's every bit of that.
The trail has some big chunky sections, sloped rock areas, a few boulders and a picnic table at the top. Some of the chunky areas are rideable but require a high level of fitness to keep the intensity up.
Other areas are pure skills areas as they transition from chunky to a steep boulder to a chunky climb. After analyzing my Strava data, it appears that I rode 70% of it, and I consider myself a high intermediate, nothing close to an expert. Don't let the rating scare you; what you can't ride, you can walk.
White Oak Ridge is a great example of how the Biology Trails keep growing with a rider's skill level and will keep riders coming back for years.
