Two-way, multi-use trail. Great climb to quickly get up to Aqueduct and to the upper segment of Orson Smith. Can be a little loose at times because of the sandy soil, but easy enough to ride around the worse parts. Overall a great short, connector from the Orson Smith trail head and much better than the fire road alternative.

Access Info
