In the beginning, there are a few punchy, technical climbs before getting to some rocky ridge top riding. There is a small clearing about a mile in. Go left at the clearing On top, there are several challenging rock gardens and baby-head rocks scattered all over. Right before the downhill, the rocks get pretty big and take expert bike handling skills-- classic Michaux riding. The DH to the reservoir is technical and fast. Plenty of rocks to huck and smash. Right before the end, there is a final rock garden that will give the pros hard time. It is off camber, and you've gotta whack down a bunch of gears pretty quickly.

Access Info

From EUB haul road, go right onto the Abigail trail (it's marked). From Ant Hill Trail, continue right/straight right onto the trail. To get back to EUB haul road, go left.
