Description

Recommend waiting for dryer conditions to ride this one.
This is 5 miles of trail and 2 miles of a gravel road. The trail is difficult because of numerous mud bogs, technical rock gardens, side hills with roots and creek crossings. It is significantly better in very dry conditions. There are some smooth segments with beautiful fern fields, old Hemlocks and big rhododendrons. It crosses Red Run fly fishing trout stream several times.
