Fast and fun singletrack trail with many different personalities. You'll find all surface types here - gravel and stone, sand, packed dirt, loam, mud, and even shale. Lots of roots. There is one thing you will not find on this trail though - a rock. There just are no rocks here. While not a big technical challenge, your fitness will definitely be tested on "The Soul-Crusher", a three-stage shale/sand washed out rooty climb that encompasses a very large chunk of the east-west version of the ride. Ride it in the opposite direction for one heck of a sketchy descent.

Access Info

Use the Highland Hill lot at the end of Highland Hill Rd, and ride north along the broken service road, make a right onto the Highland Hill fire road (at the T), and watch for the singletrack about 1000ft down on the left.
