From the bike path, there's a nice climb up to the start of the real rock. The grade is steep enough that in a granny-gear, you have to hang over your handlebars else your front wheel is going to head skyward. The granite is quite steep and has a substantial amount of pine needles on it I.E. Suicide Hill. Coming back down in this direction requires either great breaks and tires or a true will to die. Braking at the wrong point turns your bike into a bobsled atop the pine needles and the double fall-line of the rock is unforgiving. The trail continues up and levels out atop the hill, then continues straight down across the back road to the university farm where it becomes moderate downhill single-track ending with heavy root cover and mild mud. Full suspension and speed or a hard-tail with technical ability is recommended. If when reaching the top, you're too winded, a short survey will reveal a side-trail that ends near the entrance with a small beginner-style logpile near the bottom. Lots of fun, though it's very short, maybe 250-500 feet at best. If you're in the area and want something semi-steep to play with, this area is fun and worth checking out.
