With little elevation change, Fern trail is a perfect connector. Access at the end of Mother of Crack near the airstrip area and ride out to the top of Mean Gene's. Or reverse it for a nice short loop of Fern to Mother of Crack and then back up on Race Loop.
The trail has moderate rocks and roots to deal with and will be enjoyable for most everyone.
