I'd recommend a mountain bike if you want to do this - this trail has portions that are just hardpack (or crushed limestone that easily gets washed away). Skinny 23mm road tires will not cut it. Hell, my 35mm hybrid tires had a difficult time.
And yeah, have fun with that crossing. There's no gates or signs or anything, just trail, railroad embankment, trail.
