Overview

Bikes are not allowed beyond the intersection with the Limber Pine Trail.

Description

If you're like me, any time you hike on a trail that doesn't allow bikes, you always imagine what it might be like if you could ride your bike on it. You pick your lines and watch for places to catch some air. Here is a trail where you can finally put some of that to the test.

This trail has historically been hike-only. With the introduction of the Limber Pine Trail at Hermit Park, now the lower portion of this trail has been opened to bikes in order to provide access to the new trail. You can only ride it to the intersection with Limber Pine Trail but any progress is good progress!

My first impression of riding this trail, versus hiking it, is that it's actually pretty steep. There isn't too much in the way of technical features, but the grade is fairly high and steady. It makes for a small grunt when climbing, and could really turn into a screaming descent on the way back down.

There is one really tight switchback towards the "top" that will demand your attention. Otherwise, it's a pretty straight shot. Keep in mind, this trail is popular with the hikers (and they're used to having it all to themselves).
