Very steep road that doesn't relent until it has taken you to the top of the mountain where the single-track begins. Not technical at all, just steep. This road is uphill only, so if you're going to ride it, you better be committed to coming down the Ginny Trail (D.R. Trail does not allow bikes).

       Why don’t they just make an uphill only singletrack trail? This road is ridiculously steep and also loose in some spots.

       This climb sucks. Loose, steep, and filled with baby heads.
