One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Need to Know

In the spring/early summer, the ticks can be pretty bad due to the lush vegetation. It is recommended you wear bug spray and long socks and pants.

Description

The beginning of trail starts off Country Road and briefly winds through the top of the hill. This is followed by a moderate descent into two sharp switchbacks. Once at the bottom of the hill, you'll cross a creek bed and ride over a small hill, then go back across it again. The trail finishes with a short but challenging climb with some small/medium size rock scrambles.
