This is clearly and historically a ONE way DIRECTIONAL trail. It has jumps and features that are outright dangerous when people are climbing as well as several blind berm corners. DO NOT CLIMB THIS TRAIL. recently we are witnessing new riders trying to climb it and almost causing accidents. Don't be "that guy".

Trail get’s you breathing hard, not much traction for your tires due to the gravel. Definitely recommend taking Quarry Climb up instead. Enjoy the vista at the top.
