Old School rooty rocky fun Singletrack. Start at the Ashley Mountain Radio Tower drop down toward the south. Do not take the fork to Ashley Lake at the beginning of the trail. From there the descent is pretty straightfoward. There are a number of logging road crossings. the trail always continues on the other side of the road. The very last road you come across does not have a trail continuing. Follow that road downhill (right) to the end and then the trail continues to the left from there. A map is helpful for this area.

It is possible to ride up this trail as well but it is much better as a descent. There are other trails and Logging roads in the area that provide a better ascent.
