“A mix of gravel grinding, dirt doubletrack, and some technical and rocky sections.”— Chris Chaney
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
Family Friendly For the most part, this is doubletrack with only moderate elevation changes. You can drive a long way in, park, and ride shorter sections that are completely closed to motorized traffic.
Much of the ride is easy in difficulty, but there are harder sections the further you get from the paved road.
Need to Know
Much of the ride is made up of gravel roads. The northern section is trail with some decent technical sections. The trail goes over an arch in the narrows.
The section north of Whites Branch Arch has some nice technical sections and some riding over exposed sandstone.
