Runner Notes

This is a shared use trail. For now, it's out-and-back, but in the near future will be part of a larger system with stacked loops.

Description

From the Flat Holler Trail parking area run back up Bald Rock Fork Road (south) to the wooden bridge across Bald Rock Fork.

Follow the trail upstream to another parking area, and continue through the right side across another wooden bridge to a nice doubletrack that climbs steeply but then settles into some nice easy rollers.
