Starts with a big dip that can be done with no brakes if you're brave. The trail follows the fence line where the old Esso Gas Plant used to be. This trail has one of the nicest views in Devon which overlooks Lion's campground. Ends with a tight and tricky switchback section (take it wide and you'll make it).

Someone just cleared a lot of the low lying brush and branches. Makes this trail so much better now! Thank you to whoever put in the effort to do...
