“Fast-flowing sections and short technical climbs/descents.”— Jason O'Young
The clockwise (left) direction will begin with several short descents with numerous exposed roots. Midway through the trail are two trails that branch off to the left and converge toward a bridge - this trail is not legal for mountain biking so stay to the right. After this will be a sustained but easy climb that will eventually bring you back to the 3-way intersection at the end of the Cemetery Hill Connector.
The counter-clockwise (right) direction will begin with some fast gradual turns and then an abrupt but short climb. This will then lead to a gradual descent. Continuing downhill, the trail will jog to the right through the trees, so watch your speed. Another fast, gradual downhill will end with a sharp left turn between some trees. At this point, you may see a trail that heads to the right toward a bridge - this trail is not legal for mountain biking so stay to the left. Further down the trail will be another trail to the right that also leads toward the bridge - again, not legal for mountain bikes, so stay left. Next will be a series of short but technical rooty climbs and descents ending back at the 3-way intersection at the end of the Cemetery Hill Connector.
