“A twisty dirt road climb that's a great workout with amazing mountain and river views.”— Mike Pritchard
Along the way up the road, you'll note numerous singletrack trail segments that meet up with the road. Most riders use this road to access the Grandstaff Trail, either from the top, or at the several 'kissing' points along the roughly adjacent routes. The steeper segments that kiss this road are known as the Cross Trail. While open to bikes, the Cross Trail is a favorite for hikers and runners looking for a steeper workout. The lowest segments of the Cross Trail are steep fall-line trails with some deep ruts and occasional double diamond style difficulty.
The bright orange colored lift towers from the old Red Mountain Ski Area (1938-1966) can still be seen along the road.
