Provides an alternate route up to Inspiration Point during the wet season when Wildcat Gorge Trail is closed to bikers. The grade is pretty consistent from top to bottom with a few short sections that steepen up. The doubletrack is mostly exposed and can feel hot on a warm day.
During the winter there are a couple of sections that will hold the water and take a little bit longer to dry out. The soil is typical of the East bay and is the clay that we all know and love to hate. There are a couple of benches providing nice overlooks of the valley making up Tilden and Wildcat Canyon.
