One of the most popular trails at Sherando for a great reason. This trail rides well in either direction. Ridden from west to east, this trail flows about 80% slightly downhill. Great old-school bench cut trails with little rock/roots to slow you down; this trail likes to be ridden fast. Be on the lookout for hikers as this trail gets a lot of use from both parkway and lake visitors.
