This is a steep, difficult, narrow, raw, hand-built downhill run. You'll definitely want your long-travel, knobby-tried rig.
From Home Brew, watch for this trail to the south. From a very modest initial gate, the trail makes its way down through a series of switchbacks. A notable feature, early-on, is a wide wooden bridge up onto a escarpment where there is a fantastic scenic overlook of the Twin Ports harbor.
Next are a couple of spaced out, very steep, descents down rocky faces, both with pretty quick left-hand turns at the bottom.
Also, at one of the points where the trail switch-backs heading east (uphill on your left, downhill on your right), watch for a big b-line on the left that takes you up a rock outcrop for a steep roll-in back to the main line. Immediately after this there is another a/b option where the left option takes you through a "V" tree, and the right takes you off of a roughly three-foot boulder drop.
The trail mellows-out slightly for the final couple of switchbacks, though, it's still plenty exciting and rough.
At the bottom, you'll find yourself on Skyline Parkway (paved road). Your options are to hoof-it back up (use caution), or ride the roads back to the Haines Road parking lot where you hit Brewer Park trails again, or head east into the Piedmont trail system.
