Bordering the Shining Rock Wilderness, this rocky old road bed traverses the high ridges above Wash Hollow and Graveyard Fields. The trail is practically level, but it’s so full of boulders that riding it is a real challenge. Blueberries abound in late August. And remember, you can turn around anytime you like. The ride surface is all double track. Highlights include no hills, very rocky, slow riding, high meadows, waterfall, berries in season, and wet areas.
