SBMTV had 17 trail workers to a lot of benching and hedging to make the trail easier to ride. We also re routed the trail around gully section...

 What exactly is the best way to climb/get to the top of the trail?

 I don't know if it's best, but I like to park at the base of the trail, ride over to Romero Canyon and ride up the fire road, then take Blair Witch up to Camino Cielo, and take a left on Camino Cielo to the top of Cold Spring. (This is a lot of climbing, but it's much more enjoyable than riding up Gibraltar Road.)
