It's best to ride this trail from top to bottom, otherwise, your climb will be almost all hike-a-bike. This trail begins as an offshoot of the Turkey Gut trail. It's very steep and you'll be on the brakes quite a bit. There are roots-a-plenty as you drop down the trail with a few tight turns along the way. Almost near the bottom is a series of rock-laden switchbacks that only the most advanced riders can manage
