Need to Know
There are restrooms at The Rock, which is the complex of baseball and football fields at the end of Charles Hagerman Way.
County Road Trail is a doubletrack that follows an old road along the western edge of Little Creek Park from Little Creek Park Rd. downhill to Trace Fork, where it terminates.
The average grade is about 6% with several steeper sections, mainly near either end, that approach 10% or so. It makes for both a nice descent to the Trace Fork as well as a nice climb from the creek back to the trails higher on the ridge. The middle section of the trail is more level and roughly parallels Spider City
. There are several access points to Spider City
along this section of trail.
Towards the top of the trail and before it reaches Spider City
, there is a small spur singletrack that jumps off of County Road Trail and on the up hill side of it for a short distance.
The trail terminates in a beautiful, forested bottom land along Trace Fork. Here Trace Fork runs along a rock cliff on the other side of the creek, leaving a wide, flat area on the inside of the bend of the creek that is shaded with tall pines. This area can also be accessed by the Cascades Trail, a short singletrack that descends from Loop Trail
not too far from the end of Loop Trail
that exits the parking area closest to County Road Trail.
