Single track sections are not the right kind of bumpy. No natural jumps anywhere. Overgrown.
Many stop and go sections since this area is more for hikers and cows.

I usually ride this the opposite direction, from Las Tramps Road to down to Camille Ave., usually burning some single track while I'm at it. Post-ride brew at Alamo Extreme Pizza....

Those portions of the trail that are single track are not legal. The Fire Road stuff is...sad state of affairs in EBRPD. Cows have better access and more rights than we do.
