Loved this ride! New to the area so took some time to get oriented. We got confused because we thought the trail began in the Hatchery parking lot. - Park in the Hatchery parking lot and ride back to the main road, you'll see a gravel road heading up the hill, that's the start to this trail. - Steady climb on gravel, but still a gorgeous ride with pretty forest, several waterfalls. - Mile 3.7, turn off from main gravel road to side road with "Dead End" sign and barrier. - Don't take any early turns from this gravel road, the Cove Creek trail is well marked. (I think it was ~ mile 4.7). We made the mistake turning off early onto a side trail that wasn't marked. - Trail itself is lots of fun, some challenging sections a beginner can walk a bike, but beautiful. Signpost for side trail to Cove Creek falls is well marked. - Gorgeous picnic spot towards the end of the ride around mile 7.9. Apr 21, 2016
