Description

This forest road is a used in the Woods Mountain Loop, but can also be ridden as an out/back from Huskins Branch Road.

Its surface changes gradually over its length. The first stretch is groomed gravel. FSR 469A comes in from the left, and 2 miles beyond that you'll arrive at a closed gate. After that, it's a rolling doubletrack trail with some gravel and some natural surfaced sections. Stay straight through the gate for 4.4 miles and stay left at the fork in the road where you'll get to the last gate. Note, do not roll past this intersection. Stay LEFT. Go through the gate across the grassy field, and enjoy the most remote section until its terminus. If taking Bad Fork, then start looking for the trail 2 miles from this spot (on the left). It comes up quick and is easy to miss.

This is a road, but a scenic one at that, which includes the opportunity to see wildlife, waterfalls, and good views of the surrounding mountains.
