“An awesome, short loop on a popular, one-way, DH trail, using the old road back to the top!”— Coltonpalmer
The trailhead is on the corner of a gravel road just north of the south staging/parking area on Carpenter Bypass Road. Ode to Joy is a downhill-only trail, consisting of singletrack and many features that require speed and skill to ride.
If the first feature is intimidating, this mild double-black diamond trail is not for you. The next trail to the north is Snake Path, which is not mapped here.
The next trail to the north of Snake Path is Mama Tried. This is a downhill-only flow track, which can be ridden by beginners as some features can be ridden around. At higher speeds, this trail becomes more technical.
If I had to rate this loop, I would rate it intermediate. All these trails end close to an old logging road (Silver Bullet), that returns you to the trailhead.
