It is possible to climb this... in fact the lower portions are all gravel road. Past that however, the trail becomes difficult to follow and winds through some pretty big boulders. Would be a fun decent.

Washed out sections (signposted) - trail is difficult to follow towards the top, but that comes with the terrain here.

 This is not a very fun bike trail, the views are stunning, but shallow pitch, tight trees, loose rocks, large rocks, make for a choppy slow and challenging up AND down. North of 80 trails are more fun.
