Trail shared by Brandon Thrower

A steep, gnarly, technical, rutted out, beautiful piece of singletrack with cool rock outcrops and killer views!

Description

This trail is starting to get a bit to washed out, which is why I only gave it 4 stars, but the views from this trail are amazing. The two main spots are the Cragway Boone Bowl view about midway up the trail and the Flat Rock View at the top of the trail. If you don't mind running up off cambered ditches with massive rocks and gnarly roots to get to views, then this trail is for you.
