“A nice, challenging trail traversing woods, prairie, and pasture land.”— Kenny Slocum
From there, it travels south along winding singletrack through the woods right at the edge of a large restored prairie.
After a few tenths of mile, the trail comes to a junction with a sign pointing back towards the barn. Continue straight to stay on the Yellow Trail.
Continue bearing left at several more junctions until you come to another large prairie; the Yellow Trail wraps around the edge of this prairie before beginning a steep, steady, rocky climb. Several more junctions are just begging you to get lost, which is okay if you brought enough water and snacks. If you want to stay on the Yellow Trail, avoid sharp turns; many other trails are signed, but more than a couple are not.
But as long as you continue climbing, you'll eventually come to the White Trail. Turn back the way you came, or take a chance and turn left down the White Trail—it will eventually bring you back to familiar territory.
Deer are thick throughout La Riviere, as are horses, so watch your step!
