This is the easier way up rather than Masson Creek. Trail is wide single track and very popular with hikers. Some tree cover and very few rocks or tree roots. Can be sandy in spots, best to ride after an evening shower. Would be a fun downhill if not for traffic.

 Fun climb, loose, lots of traffic. 2-3 hrs before sunset is the best descent.
