“Classic PA rock gardens that will test your skills.”— Frank Maguire
The preferred direction is from west to east. The trail starts off climbing up from Engle Road through a hemlock grove and is pretty open. Soon though the trail becomes a tunnel though rhododendron and mountain laurel, making for a very cool ride. This continues of about a mile until it intersects with the Handicapped Access Trail (referred to by locals by its original name, Jamboree Trail.) If you want to skip the middle section, go right and take the doubletrack for over a mile.
The eastern third was re-routed in 2011 and has some fun rocky turns before dropping into the creek bed to finish out the ride. Be careful crossing the bridges as they can be slick.
