“A connector trail that makes the option for several different routes/loops.”— Derrick Davis
Three Bridges trail begins as a gentle downhill run through a pine forest. There is one sharp switchback and a steep drop into the bottomland. Once at the bottom there are two bridged creek crossings in close proximity before the narrow trail begins a sharp uphill with some technical turns. At the top of the climb, 0.6 mile, is the trail junction with Power Line Trail, another blue trail.
To continue on Three Bridges be sure to take the trail to the right. Technical singletrack continues over some fairly rough land and crosses under a power line. Immediately beyond the power lines the trail begins a long climb on narrow trail with turns. The descent down the other side of the hill is also very narrow trail with multiple tight turns. At the bottom is the third bridge of the Three Bridges Trail.
After crossing the third bridge the trail once again begins a climb with lots of switchbacks. This new singletrack was built as an Eagle Scout Project along with the 3 small bridges. The singletrack T's an old service road and the runner turns left. The service road continues a gradual uphill until it Ts into Rockcrusher Road, another section of the trail system.
This is one of the more rugged trails in the Nox trail system.
