Description

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.

Just about a perfect intermediate loop! Parking available right by the end of the trail. Begin with a gradual 2.5 mi. climb on an access road to the trail-head. Short, steep climb at the start ending at an open space for water/fuel-up and to catch your breath. Then the downhill fun begins! Gradual light technical descent at first, that builds into some fast downhill! Then a short, light climb after crossing Laurel Branch Road and ending in a fast and fun finish, right by where you parked. Cheers Jul 25, 2018
