To get to Middle Ridge, run up Hobbes Road about 2 miles past the intersection with the top of Flat Frog. Middle Ridge will be on your right.
Overall, the trail is a rolling, smooth, exposed, and, at times, steep singletrack. There are few roots and rocks, some erosion, and wonderful scenery. The steep descent includes a multitude of switchbacks, cliff sides, and dry trail. It is all still doable and can be pleasant, but just take your time on the steeper sections and watch your footing.
Middle Ridge crosses the Coyote Creek just before joining Poverty Flat Road
. Making a right on Poverty heads back to the Coe parking lot. Taking a left will take you to some other trails (Cougar, China Hole) if you would like to extend your run.
