This is a slow grind up to the top in the primary direction of travel. It is an old Conservation Corp rd, that is gated on both end and is very seldom used so is more of a double track. It can also be accessed part of the way up off Wampler Rd. Typically the climb is made after descending Croyle Run trail. It can be descended, a fast fun blast and then one can head out on Wampler Rd in the direction of Detweiler Run Trail.

Access Info

For the top it can be accessed off Bear Gap Rd or after climbing North Bear Meadows Rd, and for the bottom of Beidleheimer Rd
