A short ride consisting of the trails built by (Nature Jim also known as Ort) that many say are the best throughout the park.
For a longer ride check out the full version of his trails here - https://www.trailforks.com/route/clawson-challenge/

Starting location is at the west end of Cherry Ridge Road which is right off of Clinton Road.
FYI - after turning off Clinton Rd onto Cherry Ridge the road turns to all dirt with some large holes, proceed another half mile to the starting area.

Be safe and enjoy
