A 1 mile climb up to Mountain Top and Brushy Hollow intersection. This starts off easy following the creek, crossing back and forth acroos it before increasing in steepness until you reach the challenging switchback region, seven of them before you summit on the ridge line at the intersection. Do not confuse this with the easier and similarly named Beard's Gap Hollow Trail.

It is blazed in Blue

Access Info

       Lot of fun going down. Smooth and fast with tight switchbacks.
