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.
