“A great beginner trail but still a good ride for the veteran cyclist.”— Chris Garner
Take a left out of the church parking lot and take Sisk Farm Road, the first paved road on your right. The initial hill on Sisk Farm is more than enough to get your lungs warmed up for the climb ahead. After you glide down the paved hill, bear left onto Old Table Rock Road. This is a gravel road marked with a "State Maintenance Ends" sign. You'll climb, and climb, and climb some more on this packed gravel road. Be on the lookout for some dogs at one of the private residences. They have a loud bark, but they are harmless. There are roads that cut to the right and left, but stay on the main road. At the only intersection marked with a road sign around the 3 mile mark, stay left.
At exactly the 4-mile mark, you'll see a brown gate in front of you and a brown gate to your left which is Back Irish Creek Trail. Congratulations, the 4-mile climb is behind you and a descent of rolling hills await. Go around the gate on your left. This begins the overgrown doubletrack which is essentially an old logging road. You'll see an obvious bike trail the entire way.
You'll encounter two more gates throughout this ride. Go around all to the left. After the third and final gate, you'll be back on a gravel road that has some fun straightaways where you can easily hit 25-30 mph without fear of a root or rock coming at you from nowhere.
The gravel road will eventually intersect back with Fish Hatchery Road. Take a left on Fish Hatchery and ride a final paved mile back to Mountain Grove Church.
