Q: where is the trail head

    Started at Jones Road trail 17 trailhead and took trail 17 in which was very overgrown. Then was either on trail 22 or trail 23 (not marked) and they were very wet muddy and pleasant. Luckily I kept trucking on in as from here on out it was an awesome ride! Trail 5 has a small section where it seems as though you're not on a trail, but keep straight and then you're back on it. It's a fun little rollercoaster from there.

    Suggested route- 18, 19 until it turns into 6, 4, 5, and then left on 3 to go down the hill. Then 14, 2, 1, and left onto 17 to get to trail 18! to get back to the parking area.

    Best spot to start at is the first pull off on Jones Rd. At the trail head is a map that shows the numbers of the trails. Start at trail 17, it has a great single track switch back downhill section. After that follow 17 and take a left on trail 1 to the pond then a hard left on to 3. Follow 3 up the hill until there's a split and turn left on to (unmarked) trail 6. This trail connects to 19 which was a great downhill section. There are some down trees on the way but still a great run.

    pretty good trail system, although the trails on the righ side of he road can be a little muddy and over grown. Don't miss the trail 17 downhill...killer!
