example review from tarheel trailblazers - This is the toughest trail I've ridden in the area, but its very fun. You won't see any tough rock gardens, but it is technical in other ways. First, a couple climbs (gorge, no name) are technical in nature - very steep in sections w/roots and steep off-camber switchbacks. A couple downhill sections are also very tricky due to the steep off-camber switchbacks. This is not one of those wide and groomed trails. It has great flow and variety. I've ridden it a couple times and will be going much more, because it's a great trail to train up. If you can conquer this trail, all others in the area will be much easier. The climbs are the hardest in the area. I can't say that enough and its the biggest reason for me to keep hitting the trail. It makes me better. They are leg and lung burners and will challenge you technically. One thing to keep aware of is the wild nature of the trail. It's a tick haven, especially this time of year. I've had to flick some off my legs after each of my 2 rides on this trail over the past week and a half.

Recommended Route:
All of it.....12+ miles.
