Going west off Brush Ridge RD this has a short fast descent to the bridge crossing over Black Lick Run, immediately turn right and head to Broad Mountain Rd, continue west on Broad Mountain Rd for just over a mile before turning into the parking area on the left and then following the trail down to the left. This will then intersect with Main Ski Trail. Going east off Brush Ridge Rd this is also a fast downhill, if riding the best bet is to drop down onto Rte 305 instead of doing the short kicker up and then the hike-a-bike down the boy scout stairs.
In both directions this is rated blue for the climb difficulty (steepness) up to Brush Ridge Rd, going down it would be a green rating.

Access Info

At the top (east end) off Brush Ridge Rd, at the bottom via from Broad Mountain Rd or at the west end off Main Ski Trail
