This trail is awesome. A bit short now with the construction cutting out the bottom. But this little loop takes you around the Albion Basin up against the jagged rocks, and even takes you across some of the rocky sections. It is a steep wide climb if you ride it counter-clockwise. The climb up from the road is not a bad climb and the trail has recently been rerouted a bit at the bottom. I prefer clock-wise for a beautiful clamp and fast descent.
