Need To Know

Keep your eyes on the flags and if you lose them, head down the valley.

Description

Roughly 3.9 miles up, you'll come to a Carin. Take the trail that heads left and down. Follow some flags on a semi faint trail. I quickly lost the flags and after a bit of searching, I just headed down and right, running on hopes and dreams, and quickly found a pretty good trail at the bottom of the little valley. Follow the flags when they return down some awesome singletrack through beautiful woods and meadows for about 2.2 miles. The flags ended again at another meadow. I went left and down through the meadow and the dog went right to the creek but both ways met at the same old ranch road. Take that to Staunton!
