Family Friendly Almost entirely flat through the woods.

Description

This is one of the earliest mountain bike trails in this area, that is also used as a section of the long-distance Mason Dixon Trail. The trail is well marked with blue paint on the trees. It is very flat and follows a creek most of the time.

The trail can be wet after rainy periods. It has lots of sharp cutbacks and rooty technical sections. When you hit the highway bridge, ride under it, if possible. There can be lots of poison ivy and it can get overgrown at times.

The river often causes erosion, so you'll want to use caution.
