This trail cuts across the center of the South Ridge Loop
. It is a two-way trail. The north end of the trail starts by the big fallen tree on South Ridge Way. The tree has been cut into sections, and makes a decent landmark. After rolling between the ferns, the route goes up a slight incline, then crosses over 45th Parallel
. Walk your bike over the fallen, big tree and roll again on the other side.
The trail isn't highly used, so keep an eye up to determine where the trail continues. The ferns tend cover things up.
At the far side of the meadow, the trail goes to the left. (Note: There is a rarely used trail that goes off to the right). Stick to the main trail and pedal up the incline towards the left.
The trail continues until you emerge onto South Ridge Loop
. If you head left, you'll run into Stone Mill Loop
on the right. If you turn right, you would eventually run into Cedar Row.
There are lots of roots, and make sure you have long socks on, there are quite a few blackberry and fern bushes at shin height.
