“This is a series of trails that are a work in progress connecting to old backcountry style trails.”— Glyn Phillips
From Moonshiner's, go to Pickem Mountain and take a right onto FS-2420. From there, travel 1.7 miles and take another right for a pretty sweet downhill (Fern Gully and Grind Central) with some awesome waterbar-type jumps.
Next, head across the reservoir and up to the Sugar Maple Trail. At the top, head west and then turn left to climb to Flag Rock. After enjoying the great scenic views of the city of Norton and a Sasquatch statue, descend the road until you reach the start of Twisted Forest which will take you back to the Reservoir Trailhead.
