Points of Interest

1. Parking on side of Road

From here you will bike up a dirt road up and behind the Skidmore stables area.

2. Junction with Carraige Trail

Take a left and head into the woods from here. Follow this trail as it climbs a short ways and crosses under power lines to continue into the woods.

3. Follow the Stream

Ignore the Pilgrim trail heading off to the right and continue on following along a stream to your left.

4. Bee Trail Junction

Head right to head off on the Bee Trail which is one of the most difficult trails. Follow this trail as it is the only one in the area for a while. It will head east and then loop around and head west further north. Follow the gps track in this guide.

5. Ridgeline Junction

In this area you will pass by several trails heading off to the right and left. Just continue on Bee Trail straight ahead. Again, follow the track.

6. Back on the Carraige Road

From here take a left back onto the easier Carraige trail.

7. Junction

Here you need to continue east. If you head right down the carraige road you'll end up at a watery area you won't be able to cross through (unless you swim). So, continue straight and you'll reconnect at POI #4 to head back the same way you came.
