Devilcross starts off with a brief climb off of Keystone, then a few quick turns put you down at the logging road. Take a right, and an immediate left. About 100 yards down the road transitions to twisting fall-line single track, with some rock slabs and rock faces before the next road crossing. After the road crossing, The trail is fresher and the holes are bigger - the roots on this section can be challenging when it is wet. The fall line fun ends abruptly in a cedar bottomland with an off camber rock face, and the first of several creek crossings. From here the trail climbs and traverses over several creeks back toward North Galbraith. Big thanks to the Kona crew for opening up this terrain in the last few years.

      This is not a wet weather friendly trail... it may have been in the past, but there are many exposed roots that are smooth and extremely slick if wet. When wet this trail can be treacherous... ride with caution.

      Ran into a cougar today at the bottom near the bridge by happy hour. Bring a friend!

      While there are some great sections along the trail it has also seriously deteriorated in areas with a lot of roots and ruts.
