“This section is a mixture of singletrack and flat doubletrack.”— Jeff Carter
There is a doubletrack section in the middle that is flat and approximately three miles long. It is a welcome sight after the more difficult singletrack. The doubletrack passes several old mine shafts where cool air can be felt flowing from them on a warm day.
The trailhead at US 27 is not the end. The trail gets smooth and easy until it T's with gravel Forest Road 682 (Flat Rock Ridge Rd - Christian Cemetery Rd) approximately 3/4 mile further north. This is the end of the singletrack for Section 30.
Parking: There is limited parking at the beginning of Section 30. There is a grassy area, part of a dirt road, and a gravel pull-off that will fit one car each. Near the end of Section 30, there is a trailhead with a gravel parking lot on US 27, but this not the end of the trail. Parking is available at the end of Section 30 adjacent to the Flat Rock Missionary Baptist Church with a shelter and picnic tables.
