Lots of trees down or bent over the trail. Also with all the leaves, you can't really see the trail. I'd avoid it for now.

 I can't speak as to the first part of this trail, I started at the concession stand at the end and bailed not far in, but I don't really see as this should be listed as a bike trail. The last half mile or so is giant rocks, with a bunch of steps. Neither fun, nor bikable. There's plenty of other fun trails to ride, just skip this one.
