“The name says it all.”— Jack Hoblitzell
If you're coming from Portercamp Branch, the road will intersect with another dirt road. Turn left and continue climbing. Approximately a half mile or so after making the left hand turn at the top of Portercamp Branch, Miracle Mile exits the road on the left. It is easy to miss the entrance so keep your eyes open. There is (or was) a blaze on a tree marking the entrance to the trail.
The first half of Miracle Mile is relatively level and smooth, with a small ascent. Then, the trail makes a right hand turn and begins a fast descent back to Polly Hollow that averages a 9-10% grade, but with the bottom sections exceeding 20%. The entire trail is relatively smooth, packed singletrack and is fast and fun.
At the bottom, riders can turn right and ride up Polly Hollow to Beech Glen and climb Beech to its intersection with Wildcat Ridge Trail. Or, riders can continue climbing Polly Hollow to its intersection with the West Boundary Ridge Road. From the road, it is approximately 4.5 miles back to the gate at the rear of Kanawha State Forest. Also, riders can turn left at the beginning of Wildcat Ridge Trail from the road and take Wildcat Ridge Trail back down to Dunlap Hollow.
