This ride starts out exactly the same as the Bennett Gap ride by climbing steadily up to a clifftop view. From there the downhill adventure begins. Experts will love trying to clean the first rocky pitch, and the descent into Perry Cove is tight, smooth and steep. Going down is so much faster than going up. Ride surface is 2.3 miles of single track and 3.2 miles of forest road. The ride highlights include a forest road climb, spectacular cliff-top view, technical rocky descent, steep narrow trail, and wildlife fields.
