Trail starts out deceivingly rideable and looks like a short cut, follows fence with a couple down & back up hilly sections, then one which is quite narrow and can catch a pedal on the right before becoming steep down & ups, with a potential washout at the bottom of the dip. You're likely wondering whether this was a good idea if you continue beyond this point, and will have more narrow sections to navigate until you find the bunker. Taking the high trail leads to a dead end, the low trail does not continue either, the central one continues - to get harder to follow - and you'll start to think it's going to disappear, however it continues to fade out until you see the paved path below, turn and ride straight down to it,
steer to your left to avoid the barrier *AND THE CABLE.

Trail has right side down slope exposure in many sections.
This is more of an adventure than a trail to ride, as it's grown in towards the bunker and unless you're really good you're likely carrying the bike for sections. If you want to piss someone off this trail is a great candidate.
Needs to be ridden out more and perhaps cleared where narrows, maybe better as a walking adventure.
