Description

The parking area is located on White Pine Rd. Follow the fire rd approximately 1/4 mile to the start of the singletrack on the left. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. There are a few exits, but the trail is essentially a loop. It can be runed in either direction, but is only marked in the primary direction. There is one section that is a little rocky. The remainder of the trail is very smooth.

"Sunny Side" is a segment about 8 miles into the mtb trail, which you can hike without fuss as I have yet to see but one other person there along the whole route. Beautiful trail, lots of deer and squirrels this time of year.
