This is another of my favorite short rides in Pisgah, especially when combined with North Slope across the street during the winter. First half of the climb is pretty technically challenging, and indeed there is one section that I'm sure if I've ever made. It's nonetheless quite fun, and the second half is more mellow. The downhill is quite fast, with some decent technical challenge, though it is accordingly over quickly. A log bridge has recently been added to the bottom, which is welcome in that it avoids both soft ground and adds technical challenge.
