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

Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

The recommended riding direction for Lower Sidehill 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 an awesome downhill section (fast and moderately steep/technical) to Laurel Branch Road.

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

Surprising amount of down considering how short the up is. Worth a quick rip. Upper half better than lower half.
