Features -none-

Trail is on National Forest, please be mindful of hunting seasons from October to January.

Description

The trailhead is right off of parkway near the Montvale Overlook. The trail consists of three main sections. The first section is fairly fast and flowy, some sections are very narrow and brushy, so first timers should be cautious. The second section consists of some slight ups and downs with a few sections of loose rock on the descents. The third section starts at the top of a large rock outcrop and descends very rapidly over extremely loose rocks, after a hard right hand turn, the trail becomes smoother and faster still. Towards the bottom, the trail straightens out before crossing a large water bar onto a forest service road.

Rad! Super fast, narrow descent. Had to be on my game with some loose corners on a borrowed bike, but it was a fun rip & good reward for the climb. 2.9mi
