The long narrow bridge marking the entrance to Gator Back is the first obstacle and an example of the level of skill necessary for the rest of the trail. After a short warm up, enter a few short climbs onto the 50 ridge. A series of undulating bench-cuts keeps your heart pumping with a sharp drop near the end.
Start climbing again to a 60 ridge. Negotiate a climbing switchback onto a steep wooden skinny climb onto to a narrow bridge with an incredible view of the swamp. The trail follows 60 ridges with steep descents and climbs -- very aerobic.
Look out for 3 drop-offs and rooty climbs until exiting onto Bridges
