      Contrary to what the earlier comment said, this trail is bike-able and is a good test of cardio. It is a steep climbing trail but not technical at all.

      Saw this comment yesterday and it sounded like a challenge! How about climbing it with a loaded mountain cargo bike?

      Too steep to climb on a mtb. Still a decent connector trail for hikers.

      There are a lot of cyclists who would disagree with that statement!
