Starting from the bottom you start out on some double track, then the trail veers off to the left into some gorgeous single track following a babbling creek. After a short distance of following the creek you will come upon a buried natural gas line, the single track continues along easement of the gas line clearing. This is a beautiful trail that is usually very un-crowded and great for mid-spring riding when you can't get into the high mountains due to snow.

Fun. The last half, up hill, is strenuous. There aren’t any technical sections. Some sections were slightly damp but nothing serious.

Fun, but several short steep sections kicked my butt. Not technical but the last half, going up hill, is strenuous.

 A roadie's dream I suppose. It's either a torturous climb or a monotonous descent.

 Alternates between boring and too steep. Great trail if you don't like turning. Or fun.
Grass get's overgrown in the later summer, too.
