Description

This gated gravel road climbs gradually, but rolls with the terrain. Shorter climbs are often broken up by downhill sections where you can shake out the legs and recover. This is a gravel climb where you can really speed along to work on your endurance. It connects to a number of trails in the area, including Spencer Gap Trail #600, Fletcher Creek Trail #350, and Middle Fork Trail.
