This portion of the Rock-n-Ridge trail extends from Intersection #13 with the Sawmill
, to a T intersection. At the bottom of this fun descent, a left turn takes you to the bottom of the Crist Ridge Trail
, and a right turn connects to the Mowery Hollow.
Rock-n-Ridge #4 is mostly ridden downhill. It is debated whether this or Crist Ridge is the best downhill cross country trail in the Blue Knob State Park. From the intersection with Sawmill
, the trail starts as a fast doubletrack downhill. The first portion is a grassy slope. After a while, the trail makes a loose left turn then drops into the "30 mph Rock Garden" where many pinch flats occurred in the days of tubes. There is then a short rocky climb. After that is a twisty, turny, ear-to-ear grin downhill.
