Primary ridden starting from Slaughtering Ground Rd. but can be ridden in either direction. The downhill section from Slaughtering Ground Rd. to Mill Branch stream is a blast. After crossing the stream the trail follows Mill Branch stream until turning left and climbing up to the Western Trail Head Parking Lot.
