Description

This trail starts to the right of the information board it ends at another entrance to the trail system. The trail could be ridden in either direction but is probably a bit easier if ridden starting from the parking lot. The trail is marked with Yellow blazes.

After leaving the parking lot, you'll ride about a 1/4 mile before you reach a junction. Left will take you on the Adena Trail Loop and right will continue on this trail. A sign at this position labels it as "technical." At this point, the trail immediately switchbacks down hill through some tight, fun turns before going back up and following the ridge line for a while.

Next, it dips down through a creek followed by a tough hill climb. You've done well for yourself if you manage to ride cleanly through the tree notch here. After a bit more riding that is a lot less technical, you'll find yourself at the road and the start of the Lake Trail.
