The top of this trail is at the upper part of May Valley Trail System. Get to it from Suttons run singletrack or Southridge fireroad. Best ridden downhill as this trail has some remarkably challenging grades as it winds up from the valley towards the May Valley Fire Road. It will probably require getting off your bike to get through some particularly stubborn slopes. Enjoy the views of the valley below.The death march up is worth it too come down the South Ridge trail.

 One of the funnest trails I've ridden on my trip through the US so far. High speed loose off camber sections with a few little techy rock features here and there. Some sections are a bit overgrown but I think that adds to it: feels like you're riding through a tunnel.
