A fast, fall-line descent right back to the parking lot. A great way to finish off a ride with big grin on your face.

Access Info

At the intersection of Fegley Road, Three Pine, Gilbert Rd. and Astronomy there is a small clearing. There is a post at the start as well as adequate blazing thanks to a strong partnership and collaboration between DCNR and the local NICA team.
