The first three miles is mostly uphill and it takes some pushing to get over Buckwheat Knob, but the descent to the creek is a real treat. You'll enjoy the views from the gravel road. Ride surface is 4.9 miles of single track and 2.3 miles of forest road. Highlights: Nice views, some pushing required, ruts, log bridges, mud bogs, and waterfalls.
