Not worth the effort. For some fun and challenging tech hit Boom diggity then head to wonderland Sally trail.

A nice tech trail in a sea of mediocre intermediate gravely dirt trails.

Trail The Ledges
Fantastic trail. While much is blue, this is def a black trail. I road in rain and its tough for sure. If you can do Oscar's in Coler, you'll be good here. Exposure isn't life threatening but def limb. South to North is the only way.

This will get you to Schroen Train, but it’s sketchy. Better to go north a bit to the bottom of the trail and take the return trail up.

There is no access from the bike path. You need to ride along the road to access this unless you hop over a ~4' tall retaining wall between the bike path and the road, which I do not recommend.

Good trail. I would give it a blue/black rating. If your not comfortable riding on a ledge 18" wide or so you're probably not going to enjoy it. A couple of spicy sections easily walkable.

I agree with arwhite19, the dirt is super smooth and jumps are much easier to clear than cease and desist.

SUPER fun intermediate jump line with all rock lips that help you boost the jumps easily. No scary gaps, a must hit if your in the phase three area

Unpopular opinion, but I think these jumps are more fun than the upper section of Cease and Desist before you drop the hammer. Make sure you don't stop pedaling between jumps though.

Trail The Ledges
This is one of my favorite trails if not my absolute favorite. Not too many people so you can let loose and enjoy the ride. It is a challenging trail but idk if I would call it an expert trail. It is very fun. Flows really well at times and other times it's pretty technical. I would suggest riding from south to north so start out on the Commonwealth road side and go down to the Grosvenor road end.
