This allstar, rockstar route starts and ends at Lake Imaging Parking Lot. Head outta the lot and climb up Jim Branch with a right on Isaac Heath right on Locust and straight across to Hilltop. Stop at Grassy Creek falls on your right to cool off and dunk your head (don't fall in!) and eat a snack! Get back on Lake Imaging Road and go downhill to the intersection with Buck Forest Rd, taking a left to climb all the way up to an open area, bearing right on the Guion Parking Trail, ducking into the forest on your right into the Kids Bike Loop (skills area) Hit a couple laps on the skinnies, teetertotter and bridges before popping out onto Sky Valley Road and taking a right to climb all the way up up up!!
At the top, look left for a small parking area and duck into the bushes for the Rocky Ridge Trail. Now hold on and FOCUS for these corners!! Get down to the bottom and go Left on the gravel road and cross the street to Guion and Rifle Trail, leading you back to Boundary Trail, take a left and a quick right onto Hickory Mountain Road. This will end in an open field with a small structure and from here you can decide if you want to do a lap up and around Hickory Mountain Loop (take a right and do the loop counterclockwise) This will end with a great descent and a right turn on Ridgeline for your final fun downhill back to the parking lot!
