After the great climb up Clawhammer road you get to test your self up Black Mnt. trail till to get to Buckwheat knob trail.... and after all that fun you get to rally down bennett gap trail, then head back to Sycamore Cycles!!! This ride is not for the faint of heart. It is wicked hard up and down.
