Description

Brushy Hollow is a highlight at Douthat. It's best to ride from the intersection with Mountain Top and Beard's Gap to enjoy and long and exciting downhill.

From Mountain Top you'll climb gradually over a short distance. Stop to enjoy the viewpoint looking east into George Washington National Forest. From there finish the climb and get ready for an awesome downhill.

The trail is fast and fun but has many switchbacks. Be aware of your speed going into turns. Nearing the bottom of the valley, youll encounter eight rock-armored wet crossings before reaching the swing bridge over Wilson Creek. Bounce your way across the bridge and then roll out to Douthat Road.

Great views. A lot of leaf litter this time of year on the trail.
