Great section of trail, occasionally gets rutted a bit from dirt bikes, but one of the better sections of the 157. This part of the trail is very difficult to climb up to the summit parking lot. It is always best to ride from the summit and drop down Pine Hollow, Mud Springs or Tibble Fork.

       This used to be a favorite ride for me when I lived close by about 6-10 years ago using the ridge and South Fork Little Deer Creek for a fun loop. Was really disappointed to find out how bad the motorcycles have ripped this section up. The ruts have gotten deeper but the baseball sized rock issue makes me not want to return.
