Trail shared by Eric Ashley

A punchy descent to bypass the brutal hike-a-bikes on the Middle Ridge Trail.

Description

The entrance to this connector is pretty vague and you'll probably want to have your MTB Project mobile app out to make sure you catch it. The trail starts by doubling back from the main trail though a few small trees to reach a steep rock-roll that's followed by a chunky chute to an old road-trace. The short cruise on the road-trace is pretty tame, but it ends quickly when it reaches a sharp shallow turn into the next plunge.

From here down to the road, the singletrack follows a loose and tight corridor with plenty of close trees. It's a lot of fun, but just watch your bars and your steering. Make sure to slow down and check for vehicles, because the exit feeds directly onto Cleator Road.
