Do not leave a shuttle car at the Real estate station, park at the skier parking lot instead. Start at the TRT just below brockway summit. Ride technical, rocky singletrack to the top of the ridge (~4.5M). This climbs the whole way and can be strenuous. At the top turn West and ride till you hit a fire road. Ride the fire road north till you come to a singletrack (technical log crossing here) trail on the left. This trail climbs another 100 yards or so before dropping for close to 9 miles on some of the best technical, banked singletrack anywhere.
