“A quick climb up to Gold Camp Road or a flowing descent back to Chamberlain Ridgeway Spur Trail.”— Allen Tanner
The trail is not technical and has a steady grade. Sand tends to accumulate along the lower surfaces of the trail, but overall the trails are well maintained, well ridden, and great with a little rain.
The trail climbs up 500 feet in about a mile, winding between scrub oak trees. It crosses the Chamberlain Trail and further up the Upper Meadows Trail.
The 25 feet of the climb is steep and loose, right before CG Road. Most downhill riders are courteous and will congratulate those that make this little hill.
Going downhill, this trail has terrific flow, with high berms and small jumps every few hundred yards. It is a terrific way to end the Captain Jack's loop.
Be aware of hikers and joggers along this trail and yield appropriately.
