“Sweet, moderate singletrack from campground down near Cranberry River.”
— Steve Jones
None - National Forest, just be aware of hunting seasons.
Fun loop ride from Bishop Knob campground that is mostly downhill. Some short climbs. Can return to campground via gravel roads.
Need to Know
Bishop Knob campground offers rest rooms and water, but no electricity. Can go down to the river on Hinkle Branch trail, but there is no easy way back out. Adkins Rockhouse, a downhill trail, is interesting and just past the start of Cranberry Ridge trail on the other side of 81, but at this time no easy way back up other than to reverse the ride.
From the Bishop Knob campground, go out past the entrance and left, than next left on 81. Follow 81 for 100 meters, then left on Cranberry Ridge Trail. It is a fun downhill, moderate singletrack down to near the Cranberry River. Nice sweeping turns in the forest, with a mix of double and singletrack feel then back up on gravel roads. It crosses one gravel road - go straight ahead here. When it comes to the 2nd gravel road - turn left on 7/6 and left again and up the hill on 81 to return to the campground.
