Pyramid Fire Road is a gravel road that leads to the base of the Pyramid Mountain hike at the former tram station, as well as the Palisades lookout. There are several scenic view points along the way but this is very much a means to reach a destination.

       Bikes are only allowed on official trails in the park so going past the road is not permitted. The scramble past the road is not bike friendly anyways though so it's kinda moot regardless of it not being allowed.

       What makes this trail a black diamond? Is it very technical or just long and steep?

       Long and steep. Not technical at all, it's just a gravel road.
