“Old-school forest riding with a new-school section.”
— Paul Stahlschmidt on Sep 12, 2013
DescriptionThis trail is a segment of the much larger 25.6 mile Wild Oak Trail, which has been designated a National Recreation Trail since 1979. Other sections of the trail are open to riding, but this section is one you don't want to miss.
The best direction, as outlined in the Lookout Mountain Loop, starts on the ridge near Hankey Mountain Road and heads north toward Lookout Mountain.
It has a mix of ridgeline riding, a contour-built reroute, a fast descent, and a lot of rock.
There is a great overlook as the trail approaches the North River, and a suspension bridge that crosses the river near the end.
