fun, fast, and typically looser than the rest of the hickory city park trail network. some "off camber" corners, a few rooty sections, and little baby drops, definitely a blue trail at a moderate pace but alot like everything as you ad speed it becomes technical.

      The roots and the small drop have all been removed. This is now a through and through flow trail.
