Magic Moss is a newly-reworked section of the Wild Oak Trail. Starting at Braley Pond Road, the trail climbs steadily up to its intersection with Dowell's Draft. It is mostly bench cut singletrack climbing the ridge. Near the top, the bench cut is very narrow. There are several alternate lines, one with a log skinny. The trail is fast and flowy when ridden in reverse!
