This is by far the most difficult ride in the book, but one of the most rewarding. I won’t sugar-coat it: this ride is demanding, technical, steep, fast, and dangerous. If the ride itself doesn’t do you in, a bear might. When you finish you’ll ask yourself “why?” And then, out of nowhere, you’ll start planning your return, or researching other rides in the Forest—there are plenty, over 400 miles of singletrack to choose from. This demanding and technical ride has become a rite of passage for mountain bikers in the Washington, DC region and serves as the perfect introduction to the type of trail you’ll find elsewhere in the George Washington National Forest and the Catoctin Mountains to the north.
