Fun trail. Can be ridden relatively fast. Lots of rock gardens and rock water crossings.
Not advisable for someone not comfortable with navigating rocks.
Dual suspension is advised.
I added a dozen pictures as there weren't any showcasing the trail.
Enjoy!

There was a no parking sign at the recommended parking location. I parked in the big parking lot near School and Main and rode up the hill. The trail is indeed a bit tricky to find, but drcamero's directions are very helpful.

Realistically this is not a MTB trail. If you are up here take the parallel trail to this one. This is a lot of Hike/Bike, even for the experienced rider, and there are a lot of hikers which is inconvenient for both you and them. The other trail is really pretty good and gets you up and down to see the bluffs.

Good run with similar flow to White Tail, only with less descending. It links to Maple Grove, which can be used as a nice easy climb back to the top.

Would love to see Black Hole have a return connection to the top of Green Snake. Would also love to see Green Snake be single track top to bottom, as well. Epic trail as is, but would be potentially world class if it finished. Happy to help with the building, if someone knows who to contact.

The single track is great. As mentioned, access is tricky. Wish I had more time to ride it over and over.

Ok run but the porcupine, missing tooth, and garrys memorial are all better. They seem to be the best trails out of the 6 we tried.

Drcamero's directions are spot on, biked it yesterday and wished I had read his comment beforehand. Trail is one of the best I've ridden in NB, I'll be back sooner than later.

Nice natural singletrack, loamy and soft. Climb right to the end of the trail, and then turn around enjoy some of the nicest flowy descending in the east. Had a bit of trouble finding the entrance, keep your gps handy to make sure u dont go too far on the atv trail. Must turn right up what looks like water runoff rocky trail, then the trail entrance is further up that on the left. A bit of straight uneventful double track mid trail but the rest of it more then makes up for it.
