       Do not ride from squirrel gap to Cantrell Creek. This is a horse trail. It is very over grown, full of mud pits, downed logs, and about a dozen deep water crossings.

       You're going to be hiking through atleast nine rivers. But if you can shred through rivers, then i would say just send it.
