Avoid when wet, it tends to stay muddy.

Description

After climbing away from the pond at Sells Park, Rockhouse Trail starts out with a mile of really fun, fast singletrack. Around the one-mile point, a steep downhill to a wooden bridge begins a more technical section of the trail, with steeper grades, more roots, and some sand and rocks.

After passing Crumley Ridge on the left, the trail enters into a section that has trouble draining after a period of rain (and should be avoided when wet). This section features a thick blanket of bluebell wildflowers each April.

After passing the Turtlehead Cave intersection on the left (a short out and back trip either via bike or hike to a cool cave), a wooden bridge leads to a very tight switchback followed by a very steep climb. This climb leads to the White Oak Connector, another short climb that leads to an intersection with the Athens Trail.
