Description

This green-blazed trail is located across the earthen dam at Rainbow Lake. Cross the dam from the parking area and turn left into the woods to enter this lollipop-shaped loop.

The Beginner/Intermediate trail runs approximately 2.23 miles and is characterized by diverse sections where you can find flow, rock gardens, many alternate lines to hone new skills, and a short but challenging climb.

This trail is a great place to learn to ride the rocky terrain characteristic of the Mid-Atlantic's mountains, and offers smooth sections for a respite and self-confidence boost, before delivering the next challenge.
