Description

If you like rocky and steep, you'll love bombing down this trail to Laurel Run Road. No such thing as a lift in these parts -- so you're gonna have to earn your turns the old fashioned way.

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!**

Suddenly you are really glad to be wearing a hot, sweaty helmet. And, yes. It's OK to dab...

At the top of Bald Knob (2,304' elev). Yup, that tiny gap straight ahead through the brush is the trail you want to head downhill!
