Only 5 miles of trail, but challenging. There are deep mud bogs, technical rock gardens and ferns.

Recommend waiting for dryer conditions to ride this one.

Description

This is 5 miles of trail and 2 miles of a gravel road. The trail is difficult because of numerous mud bogs, technical rock gardens, side hills with roots and creek crossings. It is significantly better in very dry conditions. There are some smooth segments with beautiful fern fields, old Hemlocks and big rhododendrons. It crosses Red Run fly fishing trout stream several times.

The trail crosses Red Run several times.  Some of these crossings are rideable and some are too steep and rugged.
