This is a woods road to the water tower at the top of the forest.

Description

This wide climbing woods road starts at the back of the parking lot at the end of Research Drive and takes you to the highest point of the forest and the water tower at the top. Parts of the road used to be paved and remnants of pavement can be seen in places. Almost the whole way to the top is a climb, including a somewhat steep grade right before you arrive at the water tower. There is some loose gravel, so watch for that if descending. That said, you're better off going up this road, as the singletracks that converge near the top are a lot more fun to go down than this.
