An excellent trail beginning at Old House Gap as FS 4062, turning to single track and following the ridge all the way down to Roseboro Rd right near Edgemont.

Great trail and I'm surprised that it isn't on the official map. The trail is very sustainable other than the last mile down to Roseboro Rd. The upper and lower parts of the trail offer great views of Grandfather and the NC 181 corridor.
