Well used old dirt road connects paved Alpine Road with Page Mill Road and a few, great side trails. Overgrown into singletrack in parts, and includes a singletrack section to bypass a washed-out section of road. The bypass is steep going up, and is nicely shaped for a fun descent. The entire road is a great climb or descent. Tends to be muddy in the winter, particularly near the bottom of the trail. No technical difficulties.
