There are two bike trails in Mistletoe, Cliatt Creek Nature Loop and the Rock Dam Loop. The Rock Dam is the main feature, Cliatt Creek just gets you there and back. The two trails are about 10 miles total.
A few tough climbs, nothing sustained though. Lots of creek crossings, some are big creeks and are not rideable after heavy rains.
Besides the creek crossings, there are two techinical highlights. One is a gully. The trail drops in the gully, and follows it out. Some places in the gully the trail is only 6" wide, with near vertical walls on either side. There are lots of roots, rocks, and small drops to negotiate as you work your way thru the gully.
The other highlight is a long, severly off camber, very, very rocky climb. It's tough, and wonderful.
Mistletoe can be linked with Keg Creek and soon the Bartram trail as well, for up to a 63 mile ride.
