I've realized the hard way that I am not partial to trails that begin at a high elevation for an easy downhill descent (see Bear Creek description). The trail begins going downhill on forest roads and some pavement. About 7 miles later, you'll turn onto Canada Creek road and ride past a few farmhouses. Continue downhill on the rocky and washed out trail until you come to the scenic mountain valley. Then you will ride double track past a couple old silos and lots of wild flowers. As you approach the 10 mile mark there will be a few steel beams on the right. See picture. You will have to carry your bike over these bridge remains to cross Canada Creek. Once across, there is technical single track ahead. There will be large mounds of dirt in the trail meant to keep ATVs from riding here but it is not difficult to get the average mountain bike over. After the single track you ride on Gaddistown Road passing more farmhouses. When the pavement ends there is over a mile of pushing your bike up an extremely steep rocky hill and your thighs start paying for the downhill from the beginning of the ride. Overall, what I liked about this trail was the scenery and what I really disliked was the lack of single track and discouraging and painful end.
