Awesome dark forest riding with technical roots and switchbacks, but all doable. A great ride for a hot day. A classic. Pay homage to the goat at the start of the ride with the junction of Gorby.

Access Info

Climb up Sherwoody to Happy Gilmar to get to the top, OR follow Gorby half way up to the junction of Snakebite/Gorby/Old Goat, climb is on the left.
