“A great loop with lots of climbs and down hill runs, in either direction you choose to ride it.”— Derrick Davis
Family Friendly Short distances if needed. Great views, with lots of rolling hills and deep hollers.
Sheep Ranch Trail begins with the Charlotte's Web Trail directly across the road from the South TrailHead. The two trails split in less than 1/10 mile when Sheep Ranch Trail turns left, crosses Noxubee Hill Rd, and continues to the west, roughly parallel to Sheep Ranch Road. This trail is primarily tight singletrack which occasionally opens onto an old skid road and one fire break lane.
Blue blazed Log Jump Trail begins about mile 1.4 on Sheep Ranch Trail and runs north 1.6 miles to the lower end of Noxubee Hill Road. For nearly the first mile this trail runs down a gentle ridge along an old skid road through primarily pine forest. There are some logs across this section of trail offering the challenge of hoping logs though most of the orginal logs have rotted away and the technical challenge is quite minimal. The trail continues down to a creek offering a nice drop into bottomland hardwoods. After crossing the creek the trail continues in bottomland until it reaches an old fire road. Log Jump Trail crosses the doubletrack and gradually winds uphill until it reaches an open area with a road, a gate and Noxubee Hill Rd. Going straight leads into the CW trail.
