At the top, the trail is gravel, but as soon as it leaves the bald, look for an enclosed fast run with at least 25 waterbars. 5 miles to bottom, with awesome views. There's a bottleneck curve. Watch out, it slings you into the poison ivy, and then you end up rollin off into the creek...that really sucks...
