This is a VERY sporty climb. I saw three mountain bikers this past weekend poaching the lower table mountain trail section in the downhill direction. I was walking my bike up when I saw them. Could have been an ugly collision.People really need to pay attention to the rules. Smh. There is a big fallen tree about 3/4 of the way up charcoal that makes you have to get off the saddle. The road is in ok condition otherwise. Bring plenty of water and please be safe and fit for this climb. Aug 8, 2016
