A fun jaunt through some of the more technical, fun downhills throughout Monte Sano State Park and the surrounding land trust. This route will take you by/near your car 2-3 times so plenty of chances to restock on food, water. Pump those tires up harder than usual because there are lots of sharp rocks!
