Head down School of Rock and stay right after the trail branches just past the upper high-speed section filled with small-medium jumps. Stay left to remain on School of Rock, or head to the right and down the ladder bridge onto NRA. Cross the OHV trail after the cut block and stay left when the trail branches again after a few hundred meters. NRA finishes above the pond by Whistling Post. Continue down the OHV trail to the left towards Whistling Post or head up Toadstool to access the other York Creek trails.

The middle section is ridable in both directions and is frequently used as part of the climb up to School of Rock and Squirrel Shit. See below under Access Info.
