Description
At the end of the Turkey Feathers trail, turn left and follow the blue/white blazed trail/roadbed. This trail has lots of very cool waterfalls and streams and is a lot of fun. At one point, Rhododendrons and small Pines overlap the trail making for a crazy, blind bit of riding as you get up close and personal with the local flora.

A 1/4 mile bike push section leads to a junction with a green/yellow blazed trail to the right. Continue riding left on the blue/white blazed trail to an intersection with the yellow blazed trail. Go left on the yellow blazed trail and its unfortunate 1/4 mile bike push section.

Look for a green/blue blazed trail on the right and take it! The green/blue blazed trail is a super fun, technical, decent pucker factor downhill trail that will definitely put a smile on your face. Trail ends on the Spencer Branch Forest Service Rd. that will take you back to the parking area.
