      Avoid riding. Extremely steep, very difficult to even hike a bike up. Washed out in places and very very muddy in others. Many trees across trail.

       This is NOT a green, even by Pisgah standards. It is very steep, narrow, and washed out. It's also very overgrown.

      Don't ride this expecting an easy connector. It's rideable (except for the trees down), but it's steep and technical.
