There are three bridges. Lots of fun kickers for bikes. A rock garden and steep climbs. At the top there is an old structure that looks like it was an old mill back in the day.

Lots of graffiti and trash along the trail. Keep an eye out for mountain bikers, as some if them come zooming down the trail. Hearing the run off stream the whole way was pretty cool though!
