For mapping purposes Sassafras is split into two sections; Sassafras Trail-(lower) which is from the Kettle Rd & Rag Hollow Rd intersection down to the Spencer Trail & Rag Hollow Rd intersection and Sassafras Trail-(upper) which is from the Kettle Rd up and over to Flat Rd. This is the lower portion

This trail is a great way to start and end your ride out of Green Wood Furnace State Park. The bottom section of Sassafras is steep and eroded and could use a re-route, but after 100 yards or so it gets better and is all climbable.

Sassafras Trail-(upper) continues on after you cross Rag Hollow road and ride up Kettle road about 200 yards on your right. After the intersection of Pigpile Trail, Sassafras Trail-(upper) continues on and will connect you with Sassafras XX.

Access Info

From Greenwood Furnace State Park off Rag Hollow Rd
