Just as the summary says you'll get a good dose of roots on this trail. The opening descent was created to get away from the original fall line descent known as Suicide Hill. This section is now nicely graded but has a rugged downhill.
The aforementioned downhill spills out at the bottom of the power line easement where you'll get a great view of West Point Dam, just prior to a short technical descent along the river. The rest of the trail undulates over rocks and roots providing various technical challenges.
