A very technically demanding trail with steep punchy climbs and rocky and root filled descents. Exposure to 150+ ft sheer drop as the trail hugs the edge of the cliff for its duration. Best ridden from south to north.

Access Info

Trail beginning is at the end of the East Bluff on Huron Rd. There will be a sign that says Robinsons Folly, that is the start of the trail.
