Rode it both ways today and it's a fun, flowing trail either way. Nice reroute. Did see some bear scat and a couple turkeys!

Should add the viewpoint to the trail. 300 ft walk off the upper part of the trail.

Starting from Chestnut Spring, ride this down and pair with Brush Ridge Extension. Makes for a fun really long, flowy downhill!

I love this descent. Turn left on to brush ridge and then keep going down, cross the gravel, and go down some more on extension.

Pretty tough climb from Cooper's Gap Rd, but a fun downhill on the other side.

Rode this as a climb from upper entrance. Not too bad of a climb, but challenging in spots. Would be pretty fun downhill.

Loose, steep downhill followed by fast and flowy sections with a couple rock armored stream crossings. Really fun downhill. Climbing it would not be fun.
