Need to Know

This is not a beginner trail and you'll have to do an initial hike-a-bike for about 0.2 miles

Description

Starting from the Shingletown parking area, climb up past the reservoir, bearing right across the big log. From here, it is a 0.2 mile hike-a-bike until Red White Trail becomes rideable. Once at the top, bear left following the Red-White blazes. This trail will intersect with several other smaller trails passing two camping areas used by hikers.

Eventually, it will merge with Charcoal Flats Trail which continues the rocky tradition. Once you get near the stream, you'll cross it in order to travel on Lower Trail . Shortly after connecting with Lower Trail, you'll cross Pont Neuf (bridge) then keep following Lower Trail unto Laurel Run Rd. At the road, turn left and head down the hill.

Lookout forthe entrance for Green Shoot Trail, about 0.5 miles down the road. Turn down Green Shoot trail to begin the climb up to Bald Knob Ridge Trail . After the grunt work climbing, it is a fun jaunt across Bald Knob Ridge Trail for 1.4 miles before the real fun begins. Descending Maguire Trail down to Lower Trail .

Once you hit Lower Trail, make sure you turn right and head down Lower Trail back towards the parking lot. This part has a good challenging mix of rock/root gardens as well as some fast flat sections for a fun run back to the car.
