“A steep climb to Montevideo Road and Talcott Mountain State Park or a fun descent toward MDC Reservoir 6.”
— John Taylor
The sections of trail beyond the north and south end of this trail are closed to bikes, requiring riders to approach from the Montevideo Trail North and treat this as a sort of out-and-back or exit at the bottom and walk 100 feet north. No night riding.
The top of the trail (west end) is a loose rock doubletrack. After crossing a small stream, the land firms up and the trail narrows. After intersecting with the fire road and the Montevideo Trail North, the trail becomes a steep singletrack with some switchback turns.
