Description

After making a right off of Trace Ridge, Spencer Branch Trail descends fairly steeply down the mountain with a series of flowy, bermed corners that are interspersed with rock gardens. The trail was rerouted in 2016 to moderate the grade and improve the trail.

Love this decent...different and more flowy than trace. I'd say slightly more safe and fun. 26mi — 3h 09m
