Mostly double track with a short technical single track descent including stream crossings and gravel roads, FS5005, FS5011 and FS5024. Portions of the trail become overwhelming with poison ivy in the spring time. Many offshoot trails to explore and even a connection to North Boundary A.K.A. Three Humps trail.

Access Info

From Beaverdam Loop Road take Bear Farm road to the parking area at the forest service gates. Start the ride thru the lower (left) gate onto FS5005. It is best ridden in a clockwise direction.
