“A very sandy, loose fire road with a long season, some long climbs/descents, and a few fun whoops.”— Scott Kahre
Family Friendly If you drive or push bikes up the first 0.5 miles, the next couple of miles are nearly level. Kids like to cruise this winding section through the woods.
The road actually starts at South Middlefork Road, but the first 1.5 miles pass through an as-yet undeveloped subdivision with few parking opportunities. The building lots on both sides of the road are posted, so please stay on the road. At the upper end of the subdivision, a cul-de-sac provides room to park, and the narrower, steeper fire road starts from here.
You'll climb steadily for about 0.5 miles until you reach the ridge dividing Dry Creek and Easley Creek. Then the road levels and winds its way through the upper portions of the Easley Creek drainage. It's fun to go fast here, but watch the corners - the surface is VERY loose, especially when dry.
At the end of the level section, you'll reach a "T" intersection. A left turn drops down another fire road toward Terrace Lakes Resort, while a right turn keeps you on 6981 for a moderate climb toward the summit between Easley Creek and Scriver Creek.
At the summit, several roads converge. A hard right puts you on the Roller Coaster Trail, while a gentle left stays on 6981 (there will be some gravel in the road for a few hundred yards). Going straight shortly leads to a great viewpoint of the Scriver Creek Canyon, and eventually drops steeply to a bridge at Scriver Creek Road.
If you stay on 6981, there are a couple more fire road options to the left as you continue climbing. Eventually, the road narrows to an ATV trail and finally ends about six miles from the parking area.
