       Beautiful shaded trail, with an awesome view at some of the clearings. Narrow in parts. One walk-the-bike section over a cement drainage. Otherwise, mostly smooth and nontechnical. From the bottom, to start the trail you have to either ride up Coyote Ct (road, yuk) or Bloody Knuckles (yikes!)
