Single track that winds through tight overhanging bush creating a cool tunnel effect. The trail rolls and flows well in both directions. Make sure to walk your bikes through the 'Cyclists Dismount' section marked around the construction barriers on the South exit / entrance of the trail, to keep up good relations with home owners in the area.

 I would just avoid this trail entirely for a while, maybe until the bridge is done. The owner at the south side was yelling at me for even being on the road in the area and started punching the road sign that says there's construction in the area. He was incredibly irate about people even being in the neighbourhood at all.
