Starting in the center of town, the first hill is paved and pretty killer. Once on the trail, its a pretty easy ride. Good aerobic trail, scenic. Gravel base. Total ride is about 20 miles and you end up at the top of the mountain, perfect place for lunch and don't forget the camera. Trail for the most part is a steady climb, but very easy grade, you hardly notice you're climbing. After you leave the top, its downhill, steep, FAST! 18 miles up, 1 mile down. Sweet!
