“A short easy loop in the Jefferson Memorial Forest that doubles as equestrian trail.”— Nathan Muleski
You'll leave the ropes course behind and bend around the ridge, which you'll follow until you get there is a split in the trail. This route is a "lollipop", so it doesn't matter which direction you choose to go. This route suggests that you go left down the stone stairs to continue on the trail, which eventually loops around and you'll have to cross Jones Hollow Road to reconnect to the trail.
This trail is a great intermediate distance, and features some very gently rolling terrain, which keeps things exciting.
