“A combination of singletrack and doubletrack with a lot of climbing.”— Chris Chaney
Please visit rrgcc.org/rrg-info/pmrp/ prior to your visit and sign a waiver.
This is the Crags Loop Road. Take it all the way to the Sore Heel Trailhead and ride through to the right and pick up the lower end of the Sore Heel Trail and continue on it back out to Bald Rock Fork Road. Cross Bald Rock and take Pumpjack to Flat Hollow Arch Trail and ride it to its intersection with Fire on the Mountain.
At this point, you can make the short side trip on Flat Hollow Arch Trail to see the arch, and then backtrack to Fire on the Mountain, ride it to Hillbilly Hayduke Trail, turn right and return to the Flat Hollow Trailhead.
There are numerous variations possible in the area. The clockwise direction seems to provide the best climbing to descending ratio and also makes navigation easier.
