“After traversing through the rocks, you'll be get to some technical downhill.”— Kai Troester
This starts the more technical section of the trail where you'll have to navigate quite a few rocky sections between relatively smooth trail sections. Keep following the yellow blazes.
At mile 1.8, the trail starts to descend and the running becomes more fun and interesting. Expect switchbacks, exposed rock and moderate drops. Because of this section, the trail is best done from north to south.
Eventually you'll come out at North Pond Road and the rest of the trail will be on less challenging ground. The trail ends near the Pearl Hill SP entrance.
