An Epic for sure. With narrow trail that sidehills steep shale hills and soft soil, this is best descended from Jolly Mountain. Count on riding only a percentage of this trail, not even most of it. Call it a challenge!

Please review this trail in Satellite view before attempting. Note especially the volume that you will be riding on trail with fall hazard and exposure. The original creator of this trail appears to have attempted to follow every cliff edge possible. This is not a trail to be messed with!

 I've been up this trail quite a few times on my dirtbike. The views on Jolly Mountain are amazing. This trail is marked as a double red diamond not just double black because there is a risk of death if you crash in certain spots. It's not as bad as the exposure on West Fork though.
