    Narrowback is a segment that you would ride in George Washington National Forest, outside Harrisburg, near the WV border but in Virginia. I highly recommend you have a trail map, use the SM 100 race map or bring a buddy who know where to go. Begin off Tillman road and go to Bear road, looks like a residential road, but this takes you left to a set of fire roads and you will climb for about 4.5 miles. I believe Festival trail is the first trail. It is rocky, tight fun singletrack that will take you up to Narrowback. More climbing and rocky single track with a couple really pitchy climbs. Then you are ready for the most fun decent I have ever ridden, Tillman West. Tillman is about 2-3 miles will cross a creek at the end. It dumps you back onto Tillman road. You can go left and go back down to parking lot and Wild Oak, or go right towards Lynn or Spruce for more abuse. Enjoy the ride.
