It might not be worth the shuttle from Cold Spot Parking to the top of Mace Mill DH, but that's how we started, and then climbed to the top of Bald Mt (about 7 miles). Other options are taking 4-1 down and then 12N20Y over to Bald Mt North DH or Rock Creek Road to Trail 9.

Trail Trail 9 DH
Love this trail! Flow at the top half, technical on the bottom. Not too much moto chunk at the moment. It seems to have more solid rock on it than say 4-1. It does involve a hike-a-bike out to Mace Mill Rd, about 10 minutes of hiking and 10-15 of riding to get back to Mace Mill staging area. Totally worth it.

Stop falsely flagging these trails as “no dirt biking”. This is an OHV park.
