It starts out paved, and very, very steep. Before long, the pavement becomes smooth gravel. Pretty nice really, and potentially even doable with road tires, though knobs were definitely welcome. The hardest part for road tires might be navigating the 5 (or so) 4×4 steps that run across the path. It’s pretty east to lift the front wheel and just ride over them, since they’re buried pretty deep. After about .3 miles, the grade eases slightly, but there are still some steep spikes in the last half of the climb, made considerably more difficult by the dirt road.
