Coming from Blue Ribbon Trail from the Beaver Meadow Road direction, take the right turn halfway up the first climb to get to the BRP. This trail is more or less a straight shot to Brookemeade/ Parcel 5.

You'll find a fun and fast descent through a variety of forest including beech, pine, and managed logging land. The descent will take you all the way to a creek crossing, after which you'll have a challenging but manageable climb up to the Brookemeade Conservation area. This trail was built in May 2016 and is still being ridden in, so expect some debris and modification over the coming months.

Gorgeous fall weather. Very leafy. Trail is hard to see in several spots, but pink flagging is very good.

major switchback turns are marked and there is just enough traffic to pack down the leaves.
