The Red Trail is the most challenging of the three major loops. Hand-built, old-school cross-country singletrack features roots, rocks, climbs, whoops and creek views. Not recommended for families or beginners.

This is a mountain biking trail. Don’t really recommend for hiking as you’ll be having to keep lookout for bikers coming fast. I had two dogs so I will not do this again. The part of the trail along the creek was nice but the remaining mileage is a wasteland of new growth pine tree woods which isn’t very appealing. Easy hike though. Not hard at all.

Primarily a mountain bike trail but can use for distance training. Windy single track path. Pretty good for dogs but you definitely need to be on the lookout for bikers. We had most of the 7.3 miles to ourselves.
Stumbled onto the town of Wrocklage. There’s a restaurant called caboose. Fantastic.

Wouldn’t label this trail as hard, but it’s a nice hike. Have to go a little off trail if you want to get a good view of the several mini-waterfalls. Light traffic—I didn’t see anyone during my hike.

A little confusing trail entry if you don’t have a map loaded, but I would definitely come back. Really cool meandering creek bed formations. Not strenuous at all. Good for a picnic by the water.

Great hike, and well marked. Just be ready for a longer hike.
