This trail has an average 12% grade that is all single track and rocky. Definitely only a down trail, one way to get back down once having been up to the old Greenwood Furnace Fire tower. Once you have dropped off the very steep section onto the flatter area look out for a blazed non descript pile of rocks that will turn you off to your right vs. following the old logging road out
