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.

       This trail is one big rock garden and not clearly marked at the intersections. It appears that more trails have been added to the park, but the maps haven't been updated
