Either way you choose, it is a gradual singletrack. The trail is grassy with some rocks.

Beginning Buffalo Road, this trail crosses County Line Trail at 0.1 mile before descending the upper lip of the Allegheny Front and through the switchback before ending on a stub of road that leads to Skyline Drive. Continuing across on George Creek Road will allow you to climb TV Trail.
