This is a rocky trail connecting Signal Knob to Bear Wallow/Tuscarora. Some hike-a-bike should be anticipated for even the most skilled riders. Trail follows white blazes.

      This is more of a hiking trail than MTB trail. Their are fun sections on this trail but most if it is relentless pedaling over large rocks. If speed is your thing, this is probably not the trail for you (it wasn’t for me). If slow technical climbing and descent is your thing, you will love it.

      The climb is a mix of rideable chunk and hike-a-bike, with a few large rock features you'll have to lift your bike over. The downhill is very fun and challenging, very chunky and mostly techy rock gardens, all rideable with moderate skill, but just barely.
