Sometimes referred to as "Sugar Run" or known locally as "Deathstar", this is a fast, fun, raw, and un-groomed trail in the GWNF. There are a two main rock obstacles, the first is easier than the second. There is also some super-fast downhill towards the end, be careful when leaves are down as you'll feel like you're ice skating.

The "Deathstar" name comes from the fact that you can see a multitude of satellite dishes on the NSA base in the distance to the west. Regardless of what you call it, it's super-fun, fast and flowing. As previously stated, it becomes very steep at one section towards the conclusion of the downhill.
