Starts off a nice climb over some technical terrain until finally becoming mostly flat but still having to navigate around rocks. Enjoy the view after reaching about the halfway point through the trail. NOTE: May 2018, mid-section rerouted to avoided erosion!

 Top half is my favorite single track in the region! (It is not technical.) Then continue down the difficult bottom half and eat an ice cream cone at The Pretzel Hut on PA-501 north of Brickerville!

 Very fun going downhill! RDSmtbiker got it right! Have a cold cone at the bottom and then enjoy the long grind back up!
