Features -none-

This trail system is in a multiuse National Forest area. During hunting seasons, primarily deer and turkey (spring), you should wear BLAZE ORANGE. All forest users are expected to wear blaze during hunting seasons. There are not a lot of hunters in this area but there are some. A blaze vest or shirt ensures your visibility. Rangers are emphatic that all trail users need to comply with this safety rule.

Description

This blue trail begins on the Sheep Ranch Trail about 4 miles from the South TrailHead and runs 3/4 mile to the middle of the Three Bridges Trail described above. The first section of this trail follows a service road, crosses under the power
line and continues on faint doubletrack until it opens onto the power line a short distance later.

The trail runs downhill back and forth across the power line r.o.w. and then reenters the woods and continues down hill on a narrow ridge with tight singletrack to the Three Bridges Trail. At the intersection turn sharp left to go toward Rockcrusher Road or right/straight to go toward Pigeon Roost Rd. This is a great down hill ride.
