Arrowhead is a fun blue trail that offers a steady climb and fun downhill riding either direction. Terrain offers some fun technical small creek crossings, sandy straight always and even some loose rocks. As with all the lower trails at Carvins Cove freeze/thaw conditions will make the trail too muddy to ride.
