Major Tom is primarily used for descending but many users enjoy climbing it, thus why its marked as bi directional. At its peak, you have a great view of Moore's Wall across a nice picket fence pasture. The trail quickly drops into the forest and traverses its way through hardwoods and some rotodendrum thickets via berms and a few bridges. Now its all down, there's a couple of quick climbs tossed in to boot. It will round you out into Kessel Run trail then taking you back to the farmhouse where you can continue another lap.

      Entire trail system covered with leaves which make some of the sharp corners slick/tricky. There are a few muddy spots and the water is running...
