This is a combination xc country-downhill ride featuring some double-track, narrow single-track and some flow trails.
From the Mt Ashland parking lot, head down the Bull Gap trail (for the first half-mile it is double-track, then single-track). At the Bull Gap trailhead head up Lower Bull Gap trail. After ~2.5 miles, look for Missing Links trail and follow this for .7 miles and look for a trail to the right (presently unsigned). This is Upper Eastview and it is a narrow single track that curves its way down to FS Road 2080…and crosses that road to become Eastview trail. Eastview continues as slightly wider single-track and then becomes an old roadbed. At the Eastview trailhead intersection with FS Road 2080, turn left up the road. After .6 miles, stay straight/slightly right onto FS Road 600. This will climb up to Four Corners.
At Four Corners, look for the Catwalk sign and turn right (north). After an initial technical section, the trail becomes old road bed for a bit before heading into some longer switchback turns with bermed turns. Catwalk terminates in the multi-use Toothpick trail; turn left (west) to follow this relatively flat trail to Lamb Saddle where you can join the Caterpillar trail (also multi-use). Turn right onto Lizard. Lizard in turn dumps you right into the top of Jabberwocky which will take you to Waterline and the Witzend TH.
