From Five Points, Powerline Loop traverses a ridge on well-established, bench-cut singletrack. After a relatvely flat traverse, it climbs to a steep, right-handed switchback that is challenging but rideable. After the switchback, a fun, bench-cut singletrack traverses the slope again, but this one is downhill. A left-hand switchback at the powerline clear cut reverses the direction, once more, to traverse the slope uphill. Finally, a moderate climb up the ridgeline has you at the top to intersect with Clearcut Road. The trail is more fun in the reverse direction because there are two sections of fast, bench-cut, singletrack descent.
