Description

Enjoy this amazing downhill but don't forget to look up! When the trees clear, you can catch a view south of the high peaks on Elliot's Knob and Crawford Mountain. From the bottom, turn left on the fire road. Continue on to Braley's Pond where you'll cross the wooden bridge on your left.

Roll the singletrack along the bank of the pond and down the wooden steps to the Braley's Pond parking area, where you'll find water, restrooms, and primitive campsites along the gravel road.

I rode TWOT to get to the ridge, and had to push my bike almost 100% of the way since there was so much snow. 9.5mi
