The trail starts off with some slightly downhill flowing singletrack then has one steep chute (there might be a go around). After that it's a straight shot ripping dh following powerlines. The elevation for sure could have been used better but it is still fun.

       There's a ridiculously steep area on this trail. It's filled with rocks and doesn't allow for any mistakes. It's not easy! Helmets are a must!

       I'd say that this is pretty close to a one-way trail, dropping from Stillhouse Hollow Road down to Milesburn Rd. There is definitely a steep section on the trail - with a dropper post it isn't bad. I really liked this trail, but I'd love to see what was underneath all the leaves. I wouldn't be in a hurry to ride Wigwam if it is wet.

      And for the records, helmets should be must on all trails in Michaux!
