I believe it's called Murphy's Hogback... is that still impressive? I'd imagine they can't do much in terms of leveling and grading that.
No, its not level, but it sure has been graded. It was smooth with no rocks on the climb. As with most of the trail, you could see where they had filled in, and made it a nice easy road.
From what I was told, this has been done to make it safer/more appealing for mountain bikes. I too have cycled the loop and thought it was lame on a bicycle. So many better places in the world to pedal. And I pedal over 3000 miles a year, so its not like I'm a incompetent fatty
