Trail Description
About this trail
From the pdf: The Woodring Branch Trail is a 3.5 mile loop that is of easy to moderate difficulty. Walking time to complete the trail is approximately 1 hour. Trailhead parking is located on a short dead end spur road approximately 3.2 miles after turning into the Woodring Branch Recreation Area off Hwy 282/76. Good lake views and two small streams are found along the trail The trail is open to hiking and mountian bikes. http://carters.sam.usace.army.mil/maps/05wbtrweb.pdf

Trail is short and sweet. The front half is fast singletrack with a few short quick hills to climb. The back half is a series of slow climbs that closes with a nice leg burner at the end. Great trail to loop a few times while camping at Carter's Lake with Ridgeway close by for variety.

Review: Trail is fast and flowy. Views of the lake are beautiful. Good beginner or intermediate trail. I rode clockwise and the flow was good.

Review: Beautiful views of Carter Lake can be distracting! Descent at the start is really fun, fairly flat around the middle, and a very gradual (but eventually noticable!) climb back to the trailhead. Great beginner/intermediate trail for me (about as difficult as I can handle personally), but my much more advanced boyfriend rode it too but did two much faster laps and enjoyed it.

Review: I would call it a beginner/intermediate trail. Had a lot of fun and they are expanding the trail. No obstacles in the trail. Clockwise for some fast downhill and counterclockwise for a good leg burner.
