“Heavily wooded mountain trail with creek crossings and a lake view.”— Vanessa McKnight
Once you reach the point, between mile marker 3.5 and 4 the trail turns and becomes significantly steeper as the trail climbs the mountain. There is a good area to rest before you begin the steeper portion of the trail.
The trail is less shaded and has areas without any tree cover between miles four and six, in some areas you can see the wooded valley between the mountains. After mile five the singletrack widens to old forest road that twists and winds its way back into a singletrack around mile six.
The remaining mile and half is the most enjoyable section as it is a fast downhill through the forest.
