 Good short catch trail to get to spine, medium in slope and easier climb than the main gravel trail up grind.

 As has been noted, this is not a gravel trail as described. Currently, it is a rough dirt trail which will become gravel when development is completed, possibly later in the year.

 It is getting worn in pretty nicely now and traction is still ok with the right tires, some areas are a bit looser than others. Just need to "stay on the gas" and grind it out.
That would be great to get some gravel down in this, a good shot of 3/4 minus with some pea on top. As it is now it may turn into a greazy mud-slick non climbable muck slog in the late fall when the rains hit hard.
