A doubletrack trail that becomes singletrack as it undulates gently into the forest.

Overview

Poison ivy tends to thrive near the swamp areas here. Be on the lookout.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This green-blazed track starts as doubletrack, then turns into singletrack and undulates gently into the forest. Starting from Orange Access Trail - West after a little less than a mile, the trail curves right and comes to an intersection. Bear right, sticking with the green blazes, as the path draws you closer to the pond.

Find a rock to sit on near the water. You may be able to observe some water-based wildlife such as swans or beavers among the lilies.

The trail continues inland across an old stonewall and passes through a large field full of tall grass. Shortly after, the trail becomes heavily forested and is followed by a smaller field, with the Ned's Mountain parking lot just ahead.

For some great DH/Enduro laps park at Ned's Mountain, head down the orange trail until you come to the blue trail on your right. Follow that for 200ft and go right at the fork. Once you get up to the top, head right towards the parking lot. Then enjoy. Jan 28, 2017
