A challenging yet fun climb to get to Old Ephraim's grave or as an alternative climb before dropping down Steel Hollow. A couple hike-a-bike sections over loose terrain. The descent is full of obliquely angled fallen trees and some rocks and roots waiting to snag a pedal. Check out the Devil's Hole sink hole to the north of the trail on the climb just before you enter back into the trees.
