For those looking at options for a Kid friendly route this is my go to and is a fav of the kids with the finish down Ridgeline being the highlight. This is a point to point between the Guion Farm parking lot and the Lake Imaging parking lot. Please make sure to arrange drop off/pickup at those locations. It works as a shuttle or if a non Riding party member can drop off the riding members at Guion Farm Parking lot and pick up at the Lake Imaging lot. Roughly about 6miles and a Good beginner route for Kids. The ride starts out at Guion Farm Parking lot. Take a quick lap on Tarklin Trail to Wintergreen and let the kids explore the Winter Green Falls. This is a nice relaxed and fun route which rewards the kids with the cold waters and sites of Wintergreen Falls. Ride back to Guion Farm parking lot the same way that you came in. Once back near the Guion Farms parking lot continue going until you hop onto Hickory Mountain Road for a mild climb up for the classic full Ridgeline. Ridgeline is a classic flow trail with high speed sections so be careful. Beware of riders and hikers coming up Ridgeline as it's a bidirectional multi-use trail. Route is rated blue but a good bit of the route is on green trails. Ridgeline and the speeds that can be had on ridgeline makes this a blue route.
