Jake Mountain starts at an intersection with the Bull Mountain Connector near the Jake Mountain trailhead.

The trail starts with a slight climb and then a big, fun swooping descent into Jones Creek. Take off your shoes and carry your bike here. The pedal out of the creek bottom is steep so shift accordingly before getting back on the bike.

The rest of Jake Mountain is rolling singletrack with intersections. Stay straight to end the trail on USFS Rd 28.

The trail links to Black Branch via Beaver Pond and USFS Rd 28A.
