Beautiful forested trail through David Balfour Park. At NE part of trail is very steep slope. Use caution when descending this huge hill, especially at the bottom which is almost always wet, and often icy.

      Watch for ice. Rode it fine with spiked tires. Some a**holes dumped trash at 3 places on the big hill. F**kers! Calling 311.

      Pretty icy. The big hill was surprisingly fine to descend. It's mostly packed snow, except at the very bottom where it's icy. No problems,...
