Trail is good to go, but expect dry, dusty and loose trail surface and/or occasionally deep sandy areas.

Tram trail is a blast. It was carved out long ago by old penitentiary inmates who harvested sandstone from Table Rock like some kind of chain gang from a Hollywood movie. Those guys didn’t necessarily have the modern trail user in mind, so the upper portion is prohibitively steep–hardly anyone uses it. Lower tram, on the other hand, is a delight. Together with Rock Island, lower Tram forms a quality hike or a rad technical downhill bike route.
