“A grueling one way ride with some tough terrain, but very rewarding downhill with incredible views!”— Mike Henry
There's also a fast long downhill at the end of the ride - not for beginners!
The trail levels out and can hold water when it's wet out. Stay left at the first intersection, turn left at the next intersection, and follow signs for Palenville. This would be the place to turn back if you have any doubts! Be prepared for some serious technical downhill. There are no big drops, but let go of the brakes and you'll be flying! The trail crosses two streams, each with spectacular views from the tops of waterfalls.
The last section drops over 1,500 feet! Have fun, ride hard, but be careful!
