Flat fire road to the reservoir for about 1.8 miles. The new trail is about 4' wide, with a few wooden bridges and benches under heavy tree cover. The climb is fairly gradual with only a couple of steeper sections. As you climb higher there will be a couple good vista points to enjoy. After about 5 miles you'll reach Skyline trail which can take you to Saratoga Gap. The downhill is fast with plenty of water bars to make the trip more enjoyable.

If you are a flat lander as I am, (Florida) this was an outstanding first up and downhill experience. Lance, at Trailhead Cyclery, was extremely nice and helpful recommending a bike and John Nicholas park.Thank |
