“A short rocky section that offers fun and some challenge in both directions.”— Ray Nelson
After the road crossing, the trail widens as it continues to climb. Once you reach a switchback, the trail steepens for a short bit, and then flattens out. A little further and you'll cross another road. Next there is a narrow section of stair-stepped rocks with a switchback at the bottom. This is the most difficult part of this trail section, and a good place to walk, or if you're up to it, practice your bike handling skills.
The rest of the trail is similar to the first rocky section, but a bit longer. Once again you'll come to a road crossing. The nice thing about all of the road crossings is there are several bail-out points if you would like to head to the main road.
At the next road crossing, the trail continues west, but the next section has a considerable amount of sand than can really bog you down, unless you have fat tires of course.
For the sake of this section's description, just head back east. You'll find different lines on the way back, and it feels like it is slightly more of a descent so it rides a bit faster. Actually after you reach and climb the narrow stair-step section, the trail seems to speed up considerably, and even has a few spots where you can get your tires off the ground if you want to.
