 Please don't climb up this trail. There is an climbing trail or use the road; climbing this trail is dangerous. This trails is downhill and riders come down fast. It is a matter of time that accident will happen with riders going up this trail.

 FYI this is a two way trail. It is a great climbing trail to get to the Simpsons, so there are riders going both directions. As with any other trail, be aware of your souroundings. There may be deer, other riders, hikers, runners, or fallen trees in your path.
