       This is an easy trail that parallels the dirt access road. It is single track and gets a lot of use in both directions. It is not clear why it is rated blue. It should be green. In any case, beats riding on the dirt road.

       Easy both ways. Works as a good connector to the other stuff. Easy to carry speed
