Great section of Reservoir Trail (orange trail on DCR map). Starts at N. Border Rd., near Fallon Rd parking area. Loose gravel climb up Bear Hill, then flattens out. Drops right before trail hits Bear Hill Rd (main trail down from water tower) for good flowy downhill section.

       The climb at the beginning can be a bitch, especially because of the loose rocks, so if you can climb this without getting off your bike, you're definitely a pro. The other way around, though, is a super fun downhill run.
