Other things to know:
The first portion of the trail is smooth hard pack dirt with a gentle climb then once you reach the gate the trail becomes rockier and steeper. This trail even though it's short will test your aerobic fitness. At the top of the climb you will enjoy the quarry ruins and the cool rushing water. The ride down is a blast with a few fun detours through the rock gardens and trees.
