Very tough climb to clean. *Very* fun downhill. I encounter hikers just about every time, so definitely check your speed at blind spots. Also a bit exposed in some spots where a crash would be pretty bad.

Crazy good fun; makes for a great finale if you’re parked at Pine Hollow TH. Just be mindful of hikers here; I encounter a few almost every time. One section with a bit of exposure on the south side.

Large rocks, ruts, and roots. Not rideable up. Hike a bike 80%. Probably manageable to go down.

Very technical section on a dirtbike but doable. There will be some large rocks going up and long sections of loose rocks.
