If you’re looking for a really difficult ride in Bent Creek, this might just fit the bill. It has a lot of climbing, a steep, loose, rock downhill, and some technical washouts to negotiate. The section along North Boundary Road tends to get overgrown in summer. The ride surface is 8 miles of single track and 0.4 miles of forest road. Highlights include a long climb, loose rocks, washouts, steep downhill, spotty views, and a hidden trail entrance.
