Old logging road access turned into nice wide gravel trail. Some climbs are slightly rocky.

Disclaimer

Be mindful of others using the trail. Especially close to the trailhead where it is usually crowded. So slow down bro.

       Strange that this report says it's 1100 ft of climb. I've ridden it a million times and it's more like 650 feet total
