This is the most challenging trail on the island and is a technical lovers dream. The majority of the trail is ride-able with only a couple hills requiring you to hike a bike. Some extremely challenging climbs and technical descents. Tons of rocks and roots to navigate and extreme exposure in areas along cliff edge

.

Access Info

The beginning of this trail starts at the Arch Rock Viewing Platform. There is a set of stairs off to the left going up to a look out point, head up those and the trail starts to the left.

       Very fun trail, nice and technical you just have to remember that it’s sometimes safer to go fast and sometimes safer to just walk AND KNOW WHEN TO BAIL YOU DONT WHANT TO LAUNCH YOURSELF OF A CLIFF
