Description

From the overlook parking lot, the trail starts on the left side and climbs for a short bit before starting to descend down to the lower edge of the quarry. Be on the lookout for plenty of sneaky rock features on the edges of the trail.

Built by Knight Ide, this trail is only halfway done and currently pops out onto a doubletrack for the last half. Connect this trail with the Lower Fort Dickerson Greenway and Camp Trail to make a loop.

Nice ~3 foot rock drop that spits you into a series of berms near the bottom of a quick flow section on Cruisin'.

This trail now sucks and is not a black. They removed the berms and all noteworthy features. It is primarily a hiking trail now.
