“Nonstop tight skinny switchbacks - stay focused!”

Description
From the top of the Town Lift, head uphill for just a tiny bit, then begin a twisty, tight, non-stop descent that feels like you're in deep forest the whole time. The trail is all singletrack, with roots, narrow tree openings, and tight turns, but it's not really very difficult. With all these challenges, and so many switchbacks across the fall line, you go quite slow - you never really get any speed and the trail's 1.7 miles takes a long time. It's a hell of a lot of fun!

It's suitable for intermediates willing to go slow, or wanting to push their limits just a bit.

You'll frequently get near the historic towers that supported the ore mining carts.
