Description

This is the STEEPEST road in the Jocassee Gorges WMA. It climbs rather gradually to start, but then it heads straight up the gorge, with sustained grades of 25% or more at times. It is used to access Horsepasture Road from the south to allow a gravel loop in Jocassee Gorges WMA. There are green road signs at the intersections with the other roads in the WMA, making navigation somewhat easy.

This road is rated black due to the gravel, lack of grip, and sketchy high-speed descents. The road surface is mainly large gravel (2-4 inches in diameter) over loose sand. It is very difficult at times to get grip on the climbs. On the descents, the looseness of this surface can make it difficult to control your bike, often washing out in the corners. Heavy erosion may be present after seasonal wet weather. The roads generally get resurfaced every 1-2 years, unless heavy erosion makes sections impassable. A cyclo-cross bike is not recommended for this area, and even a hardtail may be difficult to ride in some sections
