       really hard to beat for the area. One of the best. I always see a ton of wild life too. Just be a bit careful with your speed when you do not have a good line of sight. There are a lot of people that run or bike up it too. I usually make is a loop but to each their own

       What a great trail. The people riding it against the grain, not so much. This trail is the only place someone has snarled at me while I am standing over my bike yielding right of way as they climb past me.

       With 91% riding this CCW why does the map show it as being ridden in a CW direction?
      I have ridden it 67 times in the CCW direction. You could say it's one of my favorites.
