9. Single Track or Easy Road?

Here you can make a choice. At this road intersection there is a single track biking trail heading up into the woods. You can take this or just follow the main road back to the saddle. We tried this after a day of rain and the trail was a sheet of mud so beware. Only ride this single track in the middle of the dry summer!

10. Single Track Trail Photos

Photos from the single track trail to a highpoint then down steeply. It was very muddy when we road this. Only do this after several days of dry weather!

11. Exit of Single Track

Here you will exit back onto the main road just a little ways from the saddle. Take a left and head back to your car.
