      The Hampstead system of trails is an easy to intermediate set of trails with some mellow doubletrack interspersed with some more challenging singletrack. Hit up French's Woodland for a killer downhill (or up if you prefer the suffering), Cemetery for a great time either direction, and make sure you head down to Dogwood, Maple and Hickory to round out your run. Also keep an eye out for lots of unnamed trails in the area... lots of fun and exploration to be had here.
