Description

The beginning of the route is at the bottom of the valley with a nice shaded section. Later on, the trail widens at a short, steep fireroad going uphill. The partial downhill singletrack is sandy and technical, not easy for biking; this section may require some hike-a-bike.

Lots of climbing for very little downhill. Lots of walking in the beginning, very steep, but really great workout.
