This is fun little area with some nice flowy singletrack. You can ride these trail in any number of loops so explore around and find your perfect loop.
There are trails on both sides of the Gulch. The west side has a long windy trail around the top of the plateau (called the Plateau Trail, coincidentally enough) that is fairly flat, with lots of nice roots, some logs, etc. There are also trails terraced into the west hillside, as well as several steeper hillclimbs. The east side is mostly climbing trails with a bit of up/down like Boys to Men, the Vibe, and Fifedom. There are also some stunts and jumps scattered between several areas on both sides of the tracks.
There is usually a weekly training ride here (Gulches and Brew) which features a lot of climbing. The day of the week and time varies, check the BBTC calendar.
There are numerous good routes out here. Please respect no trespassing signs and remember that it's illegal to ride along the tracks.
The trail served it's purpose however different parts fulfill different needs. From the bottom parking lot looking at the gulch, the left side provides fast single track and an easy climb. The right side is a rough climb and tends to be extremely muddy. Once you arrive at the top or park at the top and ride in, there is a good place to practice jumps, launches etc. Overall, a good place for a quick ride to appease the demon but, don't make a day out of it.
