Need to Know
Always bring a CO2 cart and a tube. It's a long walk back.
Starting from Church Road lot - the initial run starts after circumventing a wooden road block and down a gravel road. There is a clear cut into the woods on the right after 30 yards.
Turn left and ride the large horse path all the way out to the end (you'll see a road). At the moment you need to ride the same path out. After this you'll have multiple options to turn right into and get into the trails.
