This ride is very long with a lot of uphill. However the downhill sections are worth the trip, especially Star Wars. The climb up Elmers is mild until the very last section and then offers fun downhill to connect to Tick Alley. The end of Tick Alley is very long and steep and may be a good section to walk your bike. Fast Times and Star Wars are hidden in the trees which creates a unique ride. Fast Times has some climbs but by Star Wars the ride is all downhill. Both sections contain some hard to spot turns so pay attention. The ride back on Pole road offers some choices between road and single track. For a shorter ride follow Pole road, but for a more interesting and challenging ride take the single tracks from markers 14, 15 and 17. The ride ends with a climb back up School House Rock with the trail ending at Horton street.
