Good downhill if starting from Rolling Road. Couple of small water crossings, but mostly smooth. When you get to the bottom, cross the road by the pavilion/bathroom area and continue up the trail. A short but steep climb that peaks and then sends you back down for a quick burst.
If you're parked up on Rolling Road or in the park and ride, the climb back up can be a good leg burner at the end of your ride.
