“A loop starting a Burnt Hickory and turning at Dallas Highway. Marked by yellow trail markers.”— Phillip Kelley
This section will lead all the way down to the creek. Stay along the creek, turn right over the bridge, then take an immediate right to get on the South Hardage Mill Trail. Now get ready to climb! This section gains a fair amount of elevation, and then goes back down to another, smaller creek, and then right back up again.
Stay on this trail until you come to Dallas Highway. Take a left at the road to go down a very wide gravel pathway. There is a long downhill here, almost half a mile, so use it as a nice recovery from all the hills that were just climbed. Take the hill all the way down, and cross over the bridge. Stay on this doubletrack all the way through as it passes over gentle hills. Follow the yellow trail markers all the way back to the parking lot.
