Start at the Zing Trailhead and ride Trail #23 in a counter-clockwise direction.
The route climbs to start. It's steady and steep for the first few miles until you reach the nose of a ridge. There's a short respite and then the ascent continues to the junction of Trail #28. Enjoy a quick downhill and then climb up to the head of a drainage past Trail #27
As the route bends left along the upper side of the drainage, you'll get another short downhill section below a cliff. From there, there's another short climb to the upper edge of the area. For the next few miles, the route meanders along the edge of a hanging valley.
The route works it's way north and east. There's a big descent followed by a steep climb around mile 8. This is the high point along the ride.
Cross a road and stay straight past an intersection with Trail #25
. Get ready for a really steep downhill to Whiskey Chute Falls.
The route heads uphill gradually and then steeply past the falls, paralleling Charleston Road.
Once the route turns to head southeast along Brock Creek, it descends quickly back to the Zing Trailhead.
