Old dirt road bed, highly eroded in places. Connects Gambrill Park Rd to the bottom of Hamburg Rd. Primarily ridden in the downhill direction due to the difficulty of the climb, although the upper section from the Catoctin Trail to Gambrill Park road is frequently used in the uphill direction as a connection for loops.

The name comes from historic maps and a long ago property owner by the name of Stoner. You now haveto climb Three Saws because the final part is trashed by trees and erosion.

      Mid-section downhill icy due to run off. May need to redirect spring drainage as it is causing standing water.
