Loose, rocky, shaly single track descent from the top of Askom Mountain.
Only the most committed riders will make it up there with their bike on their back, scrambling up loose shale.
And only the most expert riders (Danny Hart sized balls) will ride back down.
Views form the top are spectacular though.

Access Info

Hike-a-bike access only by pushing up the down trail from the access road... And it goes straight up the mountain over steep, loose, shale & rocks. In sections this becomes more like bike-mountaineering. Not for the faint of heart or uncommitted.
