“A proper fire road climb to a ripping singletrack descent!”— Arno Gaarthuis
As soon as you pass a metal gate and garbage bin, take a sharp left onto the Blue Ridge Truck Trail (East Blue Ridge Road). It's partly asphalt and rocks due to snow erosion, but overall it isn't a hard pedal, though you may encounter some vehicles along the way to the Blue Ridge Campground. Keep going east from there until you see the Discovery Lift. To the left is a sign marked Blue Ridge Trail.
This is the start of the downhill. The Blue Ridge Trail is quite fast, but it does alternate between long straight sections and narrow parts with tight switchbacks, so don't get too carried away. Also, be on the lookout for hikers!
