    Fun ride. Good for the family, but not technical if that is what you are looking for.

    This is not singletrack. It is, however, a great ride for a cyclocross bike. The majority of the road is 2wd dirt and pretty smooth riding. As you get closer to Aspen Ridge the road gets rougher with roots, rocks and washouts. A bit of a stiff climb at the end for the cross bike but doable. A gorgeous ride in the fall when the Aspen are turning.

    Another great gravel road ride, but I've only ridden the short County Road portion. I'm eager to check out the rest of this road!
