Birch is a short little trail that jumps off of Lichen close to the parking lot, and ends at Maple, basically at a T junction. Mostly an easy roll on doubletrack, it narrows to some singletrack sections in certain areas, and also has some short, relatively steep climbs to keep things interesting. At your first junction, which is just beyond a gap in a rock wall, you'll head right. You'll then come across another connector trail coming in from the left, you'll stay right here. After a bridge and a short, steep, punchy climb, there will be an open field on your right, stay left for the trail. End at Maple intersection. Enjoy
