A difficult descent, from Home Brew to Skyline Parkway and climb back up.

Matt Goodman

Overview

Description

This is a steep, difficult, narrow, raw, super rocky, hand-built descent. No mandatory air, all the steeps can be rolled.

From Home Brew, watch for this trail to the south. From a very modest initial gate, the trail drops through a series of switchbacks.

A notable feature, early-on, is a wide wooden bridge up onto am escarpment where there is a fantastic scenic overlook of the Twin Ports harbor. Next are a couple of spaced out, very steep, descents on rocky faces, both with pretty quick left-hand turns at the bottom.

Also, at one of the points where the trail switchbacks heading east (uphill on your left, downhill on your right), watch for a big B-line on the left that takes you up a rock outcrop for a steep roll-in back to the main line. Immediately after this there is another a/b option where the left option takes you through a "V" tree, and the right takes you off of a roughly three-foot boulder drop.

The trail mellows out slightly for the final couple of switchbacks, though, it's still plenty exciting and rough.

At the bottom, you'll find yourself just above Skyline Parkway (paved road). Either exit here or continue on counterclockwise climbing back up to Homebrew..
