Overview

A singletrack run with a nice scramble on a generally rocky stretch of trail with a gradual ascent and descents throughout.

Description

This is a nice track that starts on smooth surface for about .5 miles. Then the trail turns onto the Big Mountain Trail and heads up a mountain onto a rocky and root-heavy track for approximately the next 3 miles with a gradual ascent and then a descent towards stream. The trail finishes back on the Dark Woods Trail as a gradual ascent taking runners back where you start.

An ascent along the Big Mountain Trail is not without its share of leaf-covered rocks.
