I parked up by the train station and brought my bike. I rode 3.5 miles downhill to the Ripley Falls, where I had dropped off my friend. I chained my bike there. We went in where the Appalachian trail crosses the road. The cliff has multiple areas with has some great views. Even saw the train pass down in the notch. The section down from Mt. Jackson is not as easy as described. We ended up helping some people that were fooled by the moderate rating and had a hard time getting down. The rocky trail is what made it more difficult for some. For avid hikers, it’s not difficult, but there are easier trails listed as moderate.
