This is an unmaintained but popular trail off T street. There's a small section of rocks and a small berm at the Lister elementary end of the trail. This trail has been used in a few cyclocross and MTB races.
2021 Update: Back To School is now a smooth gravel multi-use path. Rocks and Berms no longer exist.
