This is a two-way trail.

Heading north from Chambers Grove Park is a significant sustained climb. Riding south (from other trails) offers a fun, flowing descent.

The steep creek valley this trail is built into is very scenic - it has more of a deep-woods feel with mature trees and sparse under-story.

Nearly every turn is nicely bermed for maximum flow. One particular portion can get pretty sandy and may have erosion control mats in place.

Use caution when crossing Hwy 210.
