Description

This trail begins with a thin gravel fire road climb. Once the trail flattens out, it turns to more dirt and rock and fords a stream. The trail then takes a turn left and follows the Powerline Fire Road until Stafford Road, where the trail turns left and becomes a steep and winding singletrack down to Route 185.

Flora & Fauna

Deer and bears are not uncommon.
