Great section of Crystal Spring Trail with technical climbing. Riding north to south, leaves Whip Hill trail and climbs Whip Hill. Steep climb that tops out on long granite cone. Steep section down leads to a good run out. Trail crosses Saddleback Path and Cross Path then hits a steep rocky rooty seat-in-the chest downhill before running out to Pond St. Follow red blazes / trail signs and red trail on DCR Trail Map.
