The trail is mostly singletrack with a short stint on the road and crosses over several other roads. There is plenty of shoulder so you won't just pop out onto the road. At about the .7 mile point you will cross a small creek and the trail will T, take the left. At mile 2 you will cross a road and the trail will once again split. Go left here for the entire trail or straight to make a 4.5 mile loop. At 4.2 miles the trail will split again, go right downhill. At mile 5.2 the trail will come to a house being built get onto the road (Lakewood) and follow it to Bittersweet Rd, take right onto Bittersweet Rd. for about 200 meters. At this point you should see where you crossed Bittersweet at the 2 mile point. Take a left onto the trail and instead of going left at the split, go straight. Eventually you'll come back to Bittersweet Rd. Take a left and ride up to Carl's and back to your vehicle. There are several man made obstacles (jumps) to play around on if you follow these directions. Make sure you bring a spare tube if you are running tubes or a patch kit to fix any flats. There are several sharp rocks.
