Trail Description
About this trail
The parking area is located on White Pine Rd. Follow the fire rd approximately 1/4 mile to the start of the singletrack on the left. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. There are a few exits, but the trail is essentially a loop. It can be ridden in either direction, but is only marked in the primary direction. There is one technical section consisting of two rock gardens, very nearly back to back and can easily feel like one long rock garden. The remainder of the trail is very friendly to most novice mountain bikers, but never fails to challenge.

Review: Hidden gem of a world class trail system in the area of Galax, VA. Big climbs, fast descent, rock gardens, gullies, creek crossing and beautiful scenic views at the summit. Just an awesome trail system and definitely going back for more fun.

Review: If you have to go to work on Monday leave your man card at the gate and don't be afraid to get off and push in a few places.This trail is why we mountain bike, very tough in places but worth the effort.

Review: I was impressed with this trail. Well designed mtb trails with intermediate technical parts and good flow overall. Signage was excellent, a gravel road runs through several portions and we used it to bail simply due to time. I'll be back to finish it out one day.
