Lower Lynx starts from the Bull Gap Road 200 where it climbs for a short distance. Once at the top there is a nice table top jump before dropping into a tight technical trail with some rock gardens throughout. The trees are close to the trail edge and will grab a handlebar if one is not paying attention. The trail is high enough that it can be covered in snow during the winter months and there is little traffic on the trail due to its location.
