Not so much a bike trail as a gravel road most of the time. It's got a fair amount of wooded area, but it's not great for mountain biking. Last time I rode it I saw a hostage situation at an Autozone, and a woman drunkenly urinating out of the side of her minivan, so the surrounding areas are not great.

      Trail still has several large and small trees across it (at least 6 different locations). Risky for walkers, much less bike riders.

      Large trees down across trail, blocking trail. There are about 8 trees down from start of trail near up to Dupont Fort. Really not worth the ride.

      Another large tree down. Very difficult to pass

      Large tree down. Very difficult to pass. Other areas with recently fallen trees as well.. watch out for poison oak while attempting to climb over

       A few very short fun sections on mostly uninspiring trail that snakes it's way through some sketchy neighborhoods. Good if you want to spin a few easy fast miles, otherwise don't bother.

       Urban singletrack that drains well. Love that I can ride it from home.
