The section is easy and flat converted rail grade. There's no need for 4x4 or even to lock the rear differential. Puddles of water on the trail may be found closer to the club shelter and Hillman end. The surface is packed gravel without large rocks. Do pay attention to the edge of the trail, as it can have steep backs since it is converted rail grade. Bridge crossings are well-marked and are the only areas where you need to use extra care and slow down.
