Owl's Roost Professional Review and Guide
"Owl’s Roost is by far the most serious of all the watershed trails. While this track starts innocently enough, serious technical challenges lurk along the lake’s edge. Lots and lots of roots, often downhill, and often laced together into long, gnarly, off-camber welcome mats.
A slick, 25-foot, smooth-bellied gully waits after the worst of the roots for a weightless roller-coaster drop—you’ll need to do it several times. Then a monstrous log pyramid, on an uphill no less, squatting at the top of the last hill. After all that, you can return on a fast grassy doubletrack to bypass some of the rougher terrain. Tread: 7.6 miles of singletrack; 1.7 miles of doubletrack."
