It gets an extra point for being in the middle of the city.
North of the Oak Leaf break, it can be stupidly difficult, if wet. Not it a "whoa this is hard" way, but it a "I can't tell where the trail leads, because it's all mud and water."
South of the Oak Leaf break, it is a blast! Very easy, pretty fast, and goes from wide to narrow to wide. Just watch out for headphone-wearing joggers, who have no idea that you are behind them. The dog walkers will force you to stop, but they are generally very courteous. This can easily be ridden on a drop bar, rigid mtb, or gravel bike. It's a great, fast way to get from the north shore to downtown, too!
