The trail goes down a gully. From there take a left onto the rode and ride back up. You can choose from plenty of trail most of which require lots of front brake use. It is pretty technical and steep in spots, but nothing that tough. There are some fun stairs to ride down and some decent sized logs on the trail. I rode it for the first time w/ out a front brake (because I dont have one yet, too broke) and it was interesting. Definately need one. It is very fun though.
How to get there:
It is on Capitol Hill. You enter the trailhead on 19th. to get there from the university bridge you take a left onto Harvard Ave. You follow Harvard until you hit Roanoke. Take a left on Roanoke and then a right on 10th. Climb along 10th until you hit Aloha St. Then take a left on Aloha St. Follow Aloha to 19th. Take a left on 19th and follow 19th down the hill until you hit the trailhead.
