Going down on this one is a lot of fun. Too short. Watch out for pedestrians coming down at the end of the trail where it merges with the bottom of the stairs.

It can be ridden up as well but the climb is challenging and includes three small drops to hop.

Winter riding is sometimes possible if there is no mild spell when a large ice cap typically forms in a weird angle. Studded tires can stretch the accessibility a bit but won't guarantee you don't end up ramming a couple trees sliding your way down out of control. True story. Assess the trail properly before you engage yourself downhill in the winter as you can’t see the ice from the top of the trail.

      Large tree down across trail, blocking trail, 1/2 way down - descending you can duck under it, but it comes up fast!
