“Loop through narrow, winding singletrack forest trails with a number of short, punchy climbs and descents.”— Jay Holsten
After leaving the trailhead, you'll cross a fire road at the half-mile (0.8 km) mark. Stay left and continue on Dragonfly. At mile 1.6 (2.7 km), you'll cross another fire road, and proceed onto the Elderberry Loop trail. The first few hundred yards are a short but relatively stiff climb (the toughest of the loop). Continue on Elderberry for 1.6 miles (2.7 km) (at the halfway point, you'll be able to see the Bowmanton Road parking are on your left).
Elderberry ends where the trail recrosses the fire road, and picks up the eastern portion of Dragonfly. Continue on Dragonfly for 1.1 miles (1.8 km) and either take the Dragonfly connector (right) or stay on Dragonfly (left) for another 0.7 miles (1.1 km) (the steepest downhill section of the loop) and then up the fire road to the Dragonfly trail entrance/exit (or take the short alternate connector that runs off the fire road (Stonewell), which also heads back to the Dragonfly trailhead).
