Need to Know
From Moore's Springs campground, head down the 4-H campground road and look for a faint trail that heads right. You'll start with a drop down to a creek crossing and head under a bridge. When you hit Moore's Spring Rd, head right at the intersection to access Major Tom.
This part of the ride has some nice, fast, and flowing sections with good berms. It's marked with blue hexagons. When you hit Major Tom, turn left and ascend gradually over rocky terrain. Stay left at the intersection with Land of the Lost.
Enjoy the serpentine nature of this trail, marked with white hexagons. Other than a couple of rocky creek crossings, this trail is fun and flowy. At the intersection with Original Loop, stay left and continue cruising on swooping trail. There are a few nice berms on this section of the ride.
When you get back to the parking lot, cross back over the road and finish on the right side of North Side Trail.
