Park at the farmhouse parking lot, located at 2700 Moores Spring Road. The trail begins near mile marker 17 of the Major Tom Trail and ends at the parking lot behind the farmhouse. It should be ridden downhill only. The trail's surface is gravel, dirt, and rock. The trail is for advanced-skilled riders only, and it should not be taken by beginners. It is a steep, downhill trail with fast berms and big doubles, and it is a fun run on a mountain terrain that is sure to challenge.
