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

Trail Porcupine
Great trail to warmup on before it intersects with the really technical Rockadendron trail.

Trail The Wall
Very fun trail that flows pretty well, but has many technical sections. I rode it starting at the Cherry Road parking entrance off Clinton Road. The trail comes out on Cherry, so you can do a quick loop and run thru the trail again or go back the opposite direction or go left on Cherry and find other trails that offer more of the same, if not more difficult/technical riding than The Wall.
