Very steep fall line trail that just goes straight down the hill with very few turns = scary fun. Make sure your brakes work before tackling this descent. Can get overgrown which adds to the difficulty. The lower section below Mary McLeod road is easier. Watch out for hikers.

      The edges of the tail are a bit overgrown meaning you can't always easily see the best line - the trail is so steep you can't really dismount...
