Description

Begin at Bishop Knob campground or the parking area just before the gate to the campground. Go back out to 101 (Mills Mtn Rd), turn left, then left again on Coe Road (FSR #81). Look for the Cranberry Ridge Trailhead on your left. Follow the Cranberry Ridge Trail #223 singletrack across, up, and down several ridges with short climbs and twisting, short downhill sections—nothing technical, just fun.

Cranberry Ridge Trail #223 crosses 81 once and comes out on road 7/6. Turn left here and left again at the intersection with Coe Road (FSR #81). Follow this road back to Bishop Knob campground, which is a nice quiet place to camp.

Overall, this is a fun, mostly downhill loop on singletrack with a campground at the top.
