Description

This is also known as FS trail #5099.

It's a mix of doubletrack and singletrack with some steep sections.

This is an optional climb to connect Clawhammer with Pressley Gap.

The climbing starts with gravel doubletrack, giving way to singletrack and rock towards the top (Pressley Gap). The climb will offer you views down into the valley below letting you reflect on all that you have just climbed.

During the berry season, there are usually a bunch of berry bushes near the top for some extra fuel.
