Description

This trail can be ridden in both directions. This map shows the trail starting on the north end and riding south, but maybe the more common route is the opposite. Many people, including myself, ride pieces of this trail from one of many of the road crossings. You'll cross a service road approximately every five miles, give or take. Make sure you always follow the "white diamond" markers or white blazes and you'll be on the right path.
