It's dirt, Spivonius. Merely a trail blazed by walkers through the woods.

It climbs the bluff by way of two long switchbacks. To lessen the grade, of course. I could probably climb it pedalling with a mountain bike style three ring front sprocket. I only run two rings up front and won't even try riding with those. But the grade is low enough that pushing the bike on foot is no problem at all.

Looking ahead, I have a feeling that I will likely use this path going home only when weather is such that I fear for my safety in traffic. You know, heavy rain. Stuff like that.

But it's feeling like a fine way to go to work. I imagine I'll soon need some kind of spikes for the soles of my boots. It'll get slippery.
