“A good cross country singletrack alternate to finish off a North Mocassin shuttle run.
— David Lingle
North Mocassin Cutoff starts at a trail junction marked by a sign on a large tree and contours on old roadbed. There are a couple stream crossings.
Stay on the main contouring route, do not climb on the old spur roads. An obvious singletrack drops from the old roadbed into the woods for a quick singletrack section down to the Napias Creek Road.
