This is a long and very fast downhill. Bring extra brake pads.

The upper portion of this trail has steep open sidehilling and can be loose gravel. Once on Three Mile Ridge, the trail enters the woods and stays on the crest of the ridge.

There is frequent deadfall across the trail. Be prepared for a rapid stop.
