Description

Access Gorge-ous by rolling out on the Grom Loop from the main NTN South Trailhead. At the intersection, the route starts a rolling descent across a hillside into two big termed turns. The forest opens up into tall open trees.

From there, Gorge-ous follows narrow singletrack right above the Carp River, ducking in and out of small drainages. This section has a few short punchy climbs and some hair-raising turns before descending to the river at an intersection with Forget-Me-Not and the Carp River Trail.
