Downhill-lovers will be in heaven. This descent requires not a single turn of the pedals, but it’s far from boring. Jarring rocks, high roots, rutted turns, and whatever else lurks beneath the trough of fallen leaves will keep you alert. To ease your rattled kidneys, keep an eye out for a turnout over Daniels Brook. Below, water rushes from a pool through a deep split in jagged shelves of rock. Highlights: Huffing your way up striking mountainside trails; discovering that your kidneys are still intact after descending the Daniels Trail. Tread: 8.8 miles on doubletrack; 0.2 mile on paved road.
