Listed as Easy/Green, but it plays more like an Intermediate/Blue trail given the constant rock gardens and a few very narrow cliff sections on the river. Downhill it's pretty fast, but very rideable uphill as well. Many opportunities for rock hopping throughout. Great finish after coming down the Grouse Mountain run.

Access Info

You can pick this up from an easy access road right off of US 16. But the best way is to come in off of the US Forest Service Road #403 opposite (south side of road) of the Hospital Hill Interpretive Site - exactly 10 miles outside of Buffalo.

 Watch for hikers and joggers, many with their earbuds in place. Terrific downhill run thru rock gardens...where momentum and line selection is key. Lots of immersive scenery.
