Mountain Top is classic singletrack with a big climb and descent. The trail also features two great vistas of Douthat Lake.

The up and down is like a mirror image. However, the side connecting to Guest Lodge being slightly less steep and makes a somewhat less arduous climb.

Take advantage of a great viewpoint on the descent to the intersection with Mountain Side, Buck Hollow and Brushy Hollow.

Access Info

From Ross Camp Trail or at the other end via Buck Hollow Trail and Beard's Gap Trail
