Trail starts on the road just north of the parking area. Taking the trail counterclockwise, it starts off easy with relatively smooth, wide singletrack and some gravel stretches as you head uphill. Things get a bit more challenging with lots of rocks and some interesting terrain features including some large boulders. Descents are generally easy but rocky. Once you pass the brook/pond the trail opens up and becomes doubletrack/roads for the most part before exiting back to the parking area.

Access Info

Trail starts off Weldon Road about 100 feet north of the parking area.
