After a grunt of a climb you'll find a trail that snakes along the top of a knife-like ridge with cliff-top views of Looking Glass Rock and Clawhammer Mountain. Short sections are so technical it seems as if your wheels will barely hang on. The ride to the bottom is a hoot. Ride surface is 2.9 miles of single track and 3.6 miles of forest road. The highlights include a long climb, technical rocky sections, and views.
