“A fun ride from Dogway Road parking to Eagle Camp and back - mixes fun singletrack with roads.”— Steve Jones
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
Family Friendly Kids could ride some or all of this, especially Frosty Gap #235 and maybe Pocahontas Trail #263 to Eagle Camp, depending on their skill level.
Need to Know
Turn right in a grassy area to enter the singletrack section of Frosty Gap trail. Follow this singletrack for a mile, take a sharp left (easy to miss) onto Pocahontas Trail #263. Ride this fun, twisting singletrack for approximately two miles downhill across several gullys and rock crossings. Take a sharp right on Eagle Camp Trail #259 and follow this downhill to a creek crossing. You can walk across the creek at a rock crossing 40 feet or so downstream, but some can ride it without a snorkel (depending on water level) - see photo.
To return, ride Hwy 39/55 East (turn left) uphill and up Dogway to your vehicle. Some take two vehicles and leave one at the Eagle Camp parking area. There's also the option for adventurous individuals to ride back on singletrack by turning right off of Hwy 39/55 into the Pocahontas Trail #263 parking area. Most riders will want to stick to the easier road option.
But if you're feeling up to the challenge, ride East on Hwy 39/55, two miles and turn into the Pocahontas Trail #263 parking lot. Follow trail signs to Pocahontas Trail #263, continue East on this trail, not turning right at the Fork Mountain trail sign. This is an uphill ride of about 3 miles and intersects with FSR 936. Go left and ride the grassy road to the intersection with Hwy 39/55, make a short left to Dogway.
