Nasty rooty rocky section. Quick guys hammer it in times that will make you feel like a newby!

Access Info

From the blue.. eek! From the black, you'll see the bottom of a blue descent if you're skipping Deliverance.. Shortly after a fire road intersection. Marker post in front to the left with some story about squirrels or something. That's your in.

From the bottom of Mud and Roots, turn up the hill, then look for the clearing with the junction to the left. There's a marker post, you'll see the tyre marks.

From the red route...You'd be better braving Mud and Routes after Spooky Woods, as a warm up,and following those instructions, it's probably not for you. Your GoPro won't be able to record the steepness. Stick to the red route!
