On the plus side loads of potential and people that enjoy untamed “old school” pre flow trail stuff it may be enjoyable. On the negative side multiple fallen trees, a landslide making you hike off trail, unrideable sections in the uphill direction, and plenty of opportunities to launch over the handlebars on untamed rocks and roots. Could become a real gem with new maintenance.

Best done starting from Cove Creek road, the "top" is a small clearing about 0.25 miles from the actual intersection. Turning to the right, it starts as a techy, rooty trail with a few drops and some creek crossings. Upon turning left at the Farlow intersection, it gets fast and rocky, essentially a streambed going along the side of a hill. Super fun and rowdy. Turning to the left from Cove Creek Road, there's some tech to start but it quickly devolves into steep, fast, and loose, particularly the section immediately following the intersection with Lanning Ridge Road. Very different and very fun both ways down.
