“A steep drop-the-seat gallop through piles of rocks!”— David Celento
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
A good route to the top is to ride Green Shoot up, then turn right at the top onto Bald Knob Ridge Trail. You'll then have to (b)hike up to the top, dodging rocks, rocks, rocks. Forget riding. Just feel good that you're taking your bike for a walk.
At the top of Bald Knob, fight through the undergrowth and go straight past Clemons Trail (not on the MTBP map). Then buckle in for a 500' descent.
**NOTE: the way down is VERY steep and rocky -- it's rideable, but it's not for the meek!**
