Description

This trail is a combination of the historic Rock Run Trail, Gorge Trail, Two Ponds Trail, and Exit Ramp Trail.

This trail can be ridden in either direction, but is described from East to West here. The trail entrance is found on the South side of the dirt road known as Cable Line Rd a bit West of its intersection with Porter Rd. The trail is easy to follow for about 3.5 miles until you end up back near the parking lot at the west end of Cable Line Rd.

The trail begins twisting through the forest without any interesting features for about the first mile. The trail surface is a bit rockier and rootier than the Lakeside Trail. You'll then come to a fun gorge about 20 ft. deep. The trail heads down this stream bed South for a bit and then ascends steeply out to the right. A couple more fun miles of riding through woods and past ponds will get you out. The one trail choice is to stay to the right for the advanced trail, which is a fun armored trail with a couple of features. This option is also much shorter.
