There are no signs marking the trails, so stick very close to the GPS route or use the MTB Project mobile app, as there are plenty of places to go off-route and head the wrong direction.
One mile into the trail, you have to unhitch the top two rows of barbed wire fence (along your right side) and step across the bottom two rows. About 3.5 miles in, you'll cross over the Powerline Road, and the singletrack continues on the other side of the road. There are a few other road crossings, and you follow a short section of the road for a short bit. There are no signs marking the trails, so stick close to the GPS route or use the MTB Project mobile app. The turn around point is a windmill and after all the "climbing" that you did, you are treated to a fast, smooth downhill all the way back the fork and you head back out the way you came in.
