This trail is part of my favorite hard loop at the brands trail system. Deadmans ridge is very technical with off camber slick rock, and difficult route finding if its your first time on it. The last section offers some of the best descending in the area, and only takes 5-10 minutes to pedal back up to the parking lot. Bar-B is still one of my favorites for the very chunky "waterfall" part at the end. Now instead of climbing back to Rockin A via 2 track, you can rip down a few fast corners before being challenged with some very tough short climbs. Great place to compare how different bikes pedal during one of the "Outerbike" demos that happen in the spring and fall. A steep switchback was quite eroded this year, and it really allowed me to appreciate those mid fat wheels. Basically everything I rode was 27+ or long travel 29.
