Jaws is one of the more difficult trails on Spring Mountain. It begins by going down the backside of the mountain on part of the XC DH trail. Then verse off right down a series of very steep, rocky shoots separated by technical rock gardens to finally some high speed single track before intersecting the Perkiomen Trail. Take the Perkiomen trail back to the lower parking lot of SPring Mountain.
