Heartbreak Ridge

As the name implies, this down hill, four mile bike trail descends approximately 2,000 feet and is a true heart breaker.  The trail begins along the top ridge of the Blue Ridge Escarpment, accessed from either Curtis Creek Road or from the Old Toll Road, outside the Ridgecrest Conference center.  Click link for details and directions.
