Start this trail at the Picnic Area parking or by crossing the stream at Rock Run Road. Starting the trail at either of these end points require some steep and technical climbing. Grades are steeper when entering from Rock Run Road than they are at the northern terminus, so riders will need to consider if they'd prefer to climb or descend through the most technical aspect.
However, if you catch this trail from the Field Connector
or the Red Barn Connector
, you'll have a wild downhill ride in either direction. Heading toward the Picnic Area is preferred; towards Rock Run is a root-step, endo-inducer, which is exceptionally tough for even advanced riders.
