Fun little trail to climb or descend. Great for chasing the KOM on the climb and maxing out your HR. Flowy descent, but beware of pedestrians and horses, keep the speed low and watch well ahead of the trail. Hard packed dirt surface that gets greasy when wet. DO NOT RIDE DURING OR AFTER WET WEATHER. Please be an ambassador for mtb'ers when riding, be respectful to ped's and DON'T SKID!

      Mostly dry but there's a large downed tree branch on the first faster straight section in the trees just before the fun U-turn. Control your speed...
