This trail is a step up in technical difficulty from the nearby Mobb Valley trail, but easier than the Mobb Hill trail. This trail takes a little longer to dry out than the other nearby trails, so allow at least 2 days after a heavy rain.

From I-89 Exit 11 â€“ Richmond / Williston
Head west on route 2.
At the stop light turn right onto 117.
On Route 117 go 2.5 miles, then turn right on Barber Farm Road, go 2.1 miles on Barber Farm Road then bear right onto Fitzsimonds Rd. Park in triangle where 2 roads meet. Trail entry is .2 mile down Barber Farm Road on the right by a satellite dish.
This trail has been overlooked recently. Being that its a 5 minute ride down the road from Mobb Hill & Valley Trails, I'm not sure why it doesn't get ridden more often, other than the fact that it was a bit neglected after a logging operation a few years ago. Combined with the other 2 trails, one can get a 2 hour, 5-star ride.
Currently, the Eastern most loop on the trail(where the logging operation was) is not fully rideable, but is well flagged, and there is a rake beside the trail, so it should be rideable soon.
With all the rocks, roots, and sharp turns on this trail, expect to have to try some of the obstacles several times before you ride them cleanly, especially if its a humid day and the rocks and roots are sweating.
