Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

Weaving singletrack over terrain that requires climbing and descending in small lifts changing pace from Oak Hill Trail.

Description

This small section of singletrack trail weaves around an unnamed hill within the Oak Hill Trail portion of Hale Reserve. The trail is all singletrack, and the terrain is mostly dirt with sections of exposed boulder faces and some roots. The trail sits above the swampy areas of the Oak Hill Trail section of Hale Reserve, offering a respite from some mosquitoes; though, gnats and flies are still prevalent.

As it weaves through this hill section, the trail makes several descents and climbs in roughly 20 foot lifts. This is a major difference from the Oak Hill Trail which is relatively smooth over its length. This extension offers a chance to break the monotony.
