Trail is accessed just past Simmons Road and past the duck farm. Small parking lot just west of the farm on the mountain side. Initial climbs are quite steep until you reach the actual trailhead (signed). Then it is rolling and somewhat technical single track with quite a bit of climbing and less downhill until you start the return portion of the loop that arcs back down the mountain. Lots of small rock gardens - nothing massive - to make the climb interesting. This is an a unusual trail in that it feels like more uphill than down as it winds it's way across the west face of the mountain.
