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.

       Tough ride and very poorly maintained trail. Ride this just to mark it off.
