Great trail to hike-a-bike up for access to the top of South Mountain. 15-20 minute hike gets you to Summit Road, National and other trails. Downs would be only for the very most skilled riders.

       Sketchy trail but a blast if you have the courage/skill! Also watch out for hikers

       I was able to pedal about 30% of the trail up. The ride down was a blast with big drops and sketchy obstacles. I probably wouldn’t hike it again but would ride down.
