HIKE ONLY
This trail used to be rideable the whole way, but in recent years erosion has made it hike-a-bike for most mortals. It's EXTREMELY loose, with tight switch backs and some exposure. There are also a lot of hikers here who are going up/down to the reservoir and waterfall. You cannot ride up this, it's downhill only for bikes, unless you are carrying your bike. There are alternate routes to get to top, this is the rowdy way down.

Disclaimer

EXTREMELY STEEP AND LOOSE! NOT FOR INTERMEDIATES NOR BEGINNERS! (HIKE ONLY)

Recent heavy rains have washed out a lot of dirt leaving boulders more exposed and steps deeper and looser than before. Regardless of conditions,...

 The sign actually bans motorcycles, but there is no indication of bikes not being allowed on this trail. I checked both the top and the bottom.
