Idk if this is even a legit trail anymore. Tons of leaves and sticks on it to the point where you can’t actually see where the trail goes. Also, stay right on that first rock feature - staying left will send you into a giant root hole (covered by leaves) and over the bars.

It seems the section between 302 and Methodist is no longer in use for cyclists. I'd recommend only going to the Duckpond side of 302 or Starting at Duckpond and going towards Falmouth.
