Trail shared by Vinnie Connors

A short, steep climb to start leads to some steep technical downhill on the way to Boyd Branch Road.

Description

The recommended direction for Lower Sidehill Trail is from Bent Creek Gap Road down to Boyd Branch Road. In this direction, a short, steep climb with loose, medium sized rocks is followed by a great downhill section to Laurel Branch Road.

Beyond this gravel road and Laurel Branch creek is another short but great downhill, which is rocky and bumpy with some banked turns. This section passes through two grassy fields and connects with Boyd Branch Road at the Boyd Branch Trail Parking Lot.
