Yellow is the longest route at Schaeffer Farms and connects to almost every trail in the system.

From White, Yellow starts in the hardwood forest and then breaks out in open farm fields as it loops around the west side of the network. This route includes sections of smooth trail, occasional sections with roots and a handful of log-over challenges.

Yellow can be ridden in combination with White making up the Schaeffer Farms Grand Tour.
