The trail is not developed and has lots of rocks and roots. The portion of the Back Track from the secenic overlook back down to town is very steep and covered in large rocks. If you have a mountain bike with fat tires it would be challenging. Anything else is un-rideable.
The original rail line offered rides to passengers. The passengers experienced speeds near 50 miles per hour. This ride was the precursor to the modern roller coaster. Learn more about this history here.
Some additional information about today's trail may be found here. See a video of my ride on Mark's Bike Tock on YouTube.
