“A long ridgetop run.”— Brian Hard
After this, the service road turns right off the ridge and the singletrack continues straight along the narrow ridgeline for the next 4 miles or so. There are 2 side trails to the left into Sloppy Floyd State Park. In winter there are beautiful views of the lakes of the state park.
Although this is by and large a ridgeline run, it is particularly flat and a couple of the climbs are a bit steeper especially toward the end of the singletrack. Overall the surface is not very rugged other than just a couple of rocky sections.
Once the singletrack ends, the trail turns right onto service road and makes an immediate rapid descent down the ridge, making a left to stay on the correct service road, well-marked. This then winds on down to a moderate-sized parking area without facilities right on US 27 at Mack White Gap.
