As the name suggests, this trail is steep.

Description

This trail follows blue blazes. It starts to the left of the bathroom facility as a doubletrack, later turning to a singletrack. It ascends steeply and passes by the other obscure portion of the trail (on the right). As it approaches the top of the ravine, it turns to the right (during snow, this section can be exceptionally tricky). For some reason, the blazes turn to yellow here. It passes the obscure Bumpus Ski Trail (on the left) and begins its descent following along the south side of the brook. Eventually, it reaches a point where it crosses back and forth over the brook multiple times. It crosses the brook one last time to the south side, then descends moderately to meet back with the trail.
