“The longest and most challenging descent in the park.”
— Shara Klevens
Herron trail starts as a gently rolling contour trail, that has increasing larger climbs, then dramatically drops into the Jacks Run Valley. Take care when you reach the large stump mound on your left.
At that point, the trail turns and drops hard to the left, then immediately turns hard and quick to the right. Continue descending and be ready for the culvert drop. It's easily rideable, just don't get caught off guard. The last big feature comes after a climbing left that is a steep roll at the junction with Nettle
. Continuing on Heron, complete the sweep left, then turn right.
Two more rollable drops follow before some relaxed level trail. At the end, you meet up with Deer (a left turn) and Coyote (straight across).
