Check the map at all intersections. Michaux is not well-marked, so double-check before you go down 1000 ft. and have to climb back up; we've all done it. Also, logging is unpredictable. Sometimes, trails can be destroyed in the blink of an eye.

Description

3 Mile Trail is basically a 3 mile long rock garden, this will be a test of your brakes and suspension. The sections of downhill marked on the elevation map and so technical it's not possible to really build any speed. In addition the trail is so rough that even going downhill you'll still need to pedal. I am not sure every part of this trail is even rideable.

It's a little hard to carry your momentum through this rock garden, but it's possible if you find the right line.
