Technically a fireroad, but more like a wide single track. Out and back for 7.5 miles total. For the most part the trail is in very good shape with good sight lines so it can support a bit of speed (in between the opportunities to impress the dogwalkers, hikers and fisherman with your courtesy in slowing up and indicating your knowledge that they have right of way; usually they will step off the trail anyway, leaving you eternally in their debt; though some mountain bikers have suggested smiling, saying 'thank you' and calling it even).

For every nice long downhill, there is an equivalent uphill right after it. But don't despair, on the way back all those uphills become downhills.

 Nice work putting this one in. I’ve been mapping Liberty fire roads on OpenStreetMap recently and there are plenty of unmarked trails out there. Look for others on there for inspiration.
