This is a bit of a hidden gem. Wayback in the day, myself and some from the group I rode with would use this trail to get up the mountain instead of the road. It's an old access road along telephone poles.
The picks are of the trail from top to bottom. The top half is quick nice and not that difficult to ride, up or down. The bottom half has issues. The trail had been overgrown with blackberry bushes and the powers-that-be cleared it using a machine with rotating chains. This method left lots of blackberry bush branches that are only a few inches tall sprouting from the ground. This covers about half this part of the trail and at one point you need to leave the trail, hop onto another for some yards, and then back onto the trail.
