Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

One look at the elevation profile and you can see how this trail got its name. It's only a 100 foot climb, but done over 0.1 mile.

The trail starts off of Myrtle's Romp and heads up the creek. Once it crosses, the climbing, including a few switchbacks begins. One hundred vertical feet later, you are at the top.

The trail dumps you out on an old log road, where you take a left (going right is a bail out to the Gerry-Ellington Rd, good to know if you have a non-fixable mechanical this far from the trailhead).

As the log road peters out, you enter singletrack again and the trail winds through some nice conifers. Soon the gradual downhill starts along a tributary to the main creek in this state forest. This section provides some great flow as you descend. At the bottom, cross the creek and return to Myrtle's Romp.
