“A hilly, technical singletrack through a small state nature preserve.”— Josh Morgan
In the clockwise direction, the trail continues to climb to the top of the ridge and then follows the ridge around to the intersection with a very short spur trail to a lookout called "The Pinnacle". At this point, the loop descends into the valley before steeply ascending back to the intersection with the trail back to the parking lot.
