“A short section of ridge trail followed by an attention getting descent to Bear Run.
— Drew Smithberger
Trails are closed from December 15th-April 15th
This section begins at the intersection of Brooks Rd and McCain Hill Rd. Heading east on Brooks Rd., the trail is on the right just past the intersection of McCain Hill Rd.
The trail drops in steeply before mellowing out. A short distance later you'll cross Brooks Rd. and begin the descent to Bear Run. There are a couple small stream crossing and tight technical sections but all ride able.
Riding this section in reverse is a solid climb with a couple steep sections that are doable but most riders end up hiking a little.
