This is mostly wider than single track but due to its more technical nature you need that extra room most of the time. This is the most technical trail system in the area other than maybe Lake Leatherwood, especially if you venture over to the east side. The west side has traditionally been more MTB oriented but both sides are great if you are in for some technical riding. On the west side there is a gun range, but they don't bother us if we don't bother them.

Access Info

The entrance is on the east side of Highway 65, to get to the west trails, turn right at the bottom towards the gun range, to get to the east side turn lest to the parking lot.
