“A doubletrack trail running through Willowsford”— Will Plath
About half of the trail is crushed rock laid over old forest trails. The other half is either grassy field riding or packed dirt. There are few real obstacles along this trail. A couple creek crossings, and a few sections where logs have been laid down where it is muddy. The real challenge of this trail is mostly due to the leaf litter on the trail (fall). It obscures many of the rocks and roots along the trail.
Riding the trail counterclockwise from the parking lot at the end of the dirt road, it can be a little confusing where the trail leads. About 2/10th into the ride you'll need to take a right onto a paved sidewalk and follow that for about another 2/10th of a mile before the trail continues to the right. The signage was not adequate in this part of the trail system, but after that, the trail was easy to follow.
All in all, this is a relatively easy and enjoyable ride. Many wild creatures can be seen on the trail, and even a few cows!
