This ride takes in the all the best the Flatwoods has to offer. Short but tough climbs, whoops on the downhills, a waterfall, smooth single track, and a sprinkling of technical sections. There’s an old cemetery to explore and in winter you can soak in some pretty good views. Beware of the sand and look out for horses. The ride surface is 7.9 miles of double/single track. Highlights include winter views, technical sections, sand, whoop-te-doos, small stream crossings, and Wintergreen Falls.

Too many of these trails have been converted to gravel roads. Very little single track on this ride. Frustrating. There is some good single track & riding still but it's at the top of the map. The stuff towards the bottom right of the map is mostly gravel.
