The trail is a rooty descent with a few switchbacks down to the river, with a super tight pass by a large tree... watch out 800cm handle bars! Once at the river the trail continues along the river with a number of bridges over wet areas, until it's time to climb out of the river valley up a nice steep trail clinging the hill side. in 2016 a reroute removed a particularly tricky switchback, but it's still a steep grunt of a climb... at the top rejoin the VAST trail, and after a very short jog I like to continue up Cow Path which leaves to the right, for continued climbing up to the top of Sugar Hil/ Maxilla

Access Info

after a looping leatherwood and riverwood continue on VAST hill downhill, then up past the downhill only exit of Pines.. now pay attention, don't miss it... veer left onto East Branch.
