Description [Suggest Changes]

Pinhoti 6 mostly follows old forest roads. The first 1.7 miles follows a dirt road that is open to off road vehicle traffic. At this point, you'll reach a gated road (formerly FS3A) which forks off to the left following the Pinhoti Trail sign (black bird footprint on a white diamond).

This section of the trail is a grassy doubletrack. It doesn't get much traffic and may be overgrown in late summer. The grassy doubletrack descends to a creek crossing at the 3.4-mile mark. After that, you'll climb about one mile and then descend a further mile down to another creek crossing at 6.2 miles.

Starting around the five mile mark, the trail narrows to a more defined singletrack in the middle of the former forest road. This section features some jumps similar to the ones on Pinhoti 2 on the way down to the creek crossing at 6.2 miles.

Roughly the last two miles are the most enjoyable section of Pinhoti 6 featuring relatively new (2014), flowy singletrack. The final 0.5 mile descent includes a number of tight switchbacks.

You can make this into a good loop ride with Dennis Mill Road - Old Federal Road - Peeples Lake Road (FS 3) - Pinhoti 6 (FS 3A) starting from the large trailhead at Dennis Mill Road.

The first mile from Dennis Mill parking lot is a nice steep trail with switchbacks (very fun going down) to the top and a downhill on the other side. Then it gradually turns into an overgrown trail (during summer) for the next several miles that changes, from singletrack to wider doubletrack until you reach the next pinhoti section. Can make for an epic long ride all the way to P3. Aug 17, 2017
