“Several climbs and descents with some technical sections.”— Rob Tompkins
Cross under the bridge and make the granite climb that is "cobbled" with a mixture of foster-oven/microwave sized flat granite stones. After the climb there an access trail comes in from the right.
Continue down a downhill with two wooden bridges. The next section of trail has three creek crossings that are rideable but tricky. They are all visible and don't sneak up on you.
At the top of the climb after the third creek crossing, another access trail comes in from the right. Continue straight and around a sweeping right turn on a slight descent. In the middle of the descent another access trail comes in on the right in the middle of a left turn. Continue down the descent, and under an access bridge of sorts that you pass at the bottom of the descent.
A straight section follows with a fork at the end of it. You are at the entrance to a loop here. Going left avoids the loop. The convention by most regulars is to ride this loop. The small loop ends with a sharp right turn with a bank on the left wall.
A wooden ramp climb presents itself here with a 16" wide bit of bricks laid into it to promote traction. At the top of the climb you are presented with another fork, go left. After 30 more yards another access trail comes in, this one is access to 42nd street.
After this last access trail there is a quarter mile of some of the fastest flowy sections of trail in the entire park system. Speeds of 30mph have been clocked here, but if you do go that fast keep an eye peeled for foot traffic as the trails are multi-use.
The trail ends at a kiosk at the Reedy Creek parking area.
