For mapping purposes Sassafras is split into two sections; Sassafras Trail-(lower) which is from the Kettle Rd & Rag Hollow Rd intersection down to the Spencer Trail & Rag Hollow Rd intersection and Sassafras Trail-(upper) which is from the Kettle Rd up and over to Flat Rd. This is the upper portion
From Kettle this is a slow climb through the odd small rock garden past the turn off to Pigpile Trail before a fast descent to Flat Rd. Watch the right hand turn that is 90 degrees. At the bottom the trail takes another sharp right just before Flat Rd and parallels the road to end and comes out on the turnaround at the gate to Flat Road Trail and the entrance to Sass-XX
This is normally only done in this direction, the climb is to steep up from Flat Rd.
