      Ugh, don't bother going up this trail - totally not worth it! You are better off riding up the fire road, then linking with the Red Ridge Trail, then doing the whole of the Stony Brook descent all the way down to the fire road/ electric loop.

      The top of White Horse is beautiful with lots of exposed rock to ride around on.
