Description

The top-level area does have about ten pond/puddles that can be a nuisance. Much of the terrain is large, in-ground rock features.
Only the final section of climbing is steep enough to cause problems while the rest is rideable. Views are limited year-round due to spruce trees, but some of Stuarts Draft and some of Kennedy Ridge can be spotted.
