Short singletrack alternative to the fire road. Gets a little tight along nature preserve fencing

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 1 Rating: No obstacles exist. Wide enough. Can be ridden confidently solo.

Gets narrow along the nature preserve fence, but its mostly flat and majority of aMTB's will be fine.
