This trail starts as a logging road for the first 1/2 mile before the singletrack turns off to the left and continues climbing. This a 3 mile trail that connects to Telephone trail at the top before ending on Seeger Rd. (1100ft of elevation average grade of 6.6%

This is a good intermediate level trail that features short rocky sections and only requires medium technical skills.

I would not recommend using this trail in the early spring when as conditions are much wetter and you could be riding in run off areas from time to time. The best times to ride this trail are in mid to later summer and fall, when it will definitely be dryer.

Access Info

Head west out of the park on Broad Mtn Rd, which becomes Black Lick Rd, for an easy two mile warm up.
