Trails are generally open from May - November. Please do not ride on soft trails during spring runoff as the trails are extremely vulnerable to rutting during that period.
This trail has a nice gradual climb before a short somewhat rocky descent to the overlook. Enjoy the views, have a snack, then climb back up the rocky spur trail. It's mostly flat singletrack to start your way back, but then gradually descending until you meet up with the Smoking Handlebar Trail.
