A long steep climb, not technical, just long (about 1 mile). Lots of fun on the down hill ride but it is a popular trail for hikers and equestrians...so be careful.

       Decent spot to ride up from big river rd to get to mo betta trails to go down. It’s a climb. Can only be so much fun. There’s better trails to drop elevation on I’d say
