This is a paved multi-use path and not a mountain bike specific trail. Please remove from MTBProject. May 21, 2017
Hi Ed, Thanks for reaching out! You're correct that this isn't a dirt singletrack trail. That said, it seems like a highly-accessible route for folks who are thinking about getting into dirt riding or just want to bike away from car traffic. Hopefully, the description covers that distinction well enough, but feel free to use the "Improve This Page" link (above photos) to submit any other edits. May 23, 2017
