This is a new(ish) MtB specific trail at James River State Park. It's fairly flat after a fire road climb up the ridge to get to the start. You can ride it in either direction. It's newly cut, so the ride is likely to change with increased bicycle traffic, but there are only a few roots and rocks to contend with.
