Less frequently traveled route but fun and challenging. Very technical climbing and fast/steep downhill.

Access Info

Coming up Maguire Trail, turn left at the ridge top. If coming west down Bald Knob, keep going straight at Maguire (on your left). After 1/2 mile on the ridge, be on the lookout for a left turn as there is an unmarked trail that continues straight but follows the ridge. Take this left and hang on for a super steep but fun descent!
