The trail is very well maintained with generally smooth changes in grade. Relatively flat switchbacks (no great berms in the corners). No extreme climbs aside from the initial push to get from the water tanks to the Sagebrush Trail, but climbing/descending is generally steady (think 'a two mile climb followed by a two mile descent'). Great view of multiple valleys throughout the ride.

“A there-&-back trail, & part of a trail system. Great for workouts but devoid of any major features.”
— Ben Singley on May 29, 2014

Access Info

Parts of the trail system are for hikers only, and have appropriate signage. Dogs must be leashed. There are often MANY hikers/runners with or without dogs. The trail is generally immaculately maintained & there is a strong vibe against leaving the trail or damaging it for any reason, so be courteous and thoughtful as you ride. Don't lock your brakes in turns, and be prepared to give right of way to hikers & runners.
