Runner Notes

Although most mountain bikes climb this beast at 3mph, there might be a few who descend it at 30mph so keep eyes up trail.

Description

I almost rated this wide dirt road intermediate just from its relentless steep climb, but not quite.

From the end of Worsham Canyon Trail, take the fire road uphill and climb through dusty brown hills to an intersection with Elderberry Trail, and stay right. From there, the trail is affectionately known, unofficially, as the 5-B's. It is a series of really steep grades for about a quarter-mile, then two last pushes to the peak.
