A lightly used paved road takes you all the way to the top of Shenandoah Mountain and the state line before depositing you on Hone Quarry Ridge. On top, you'll find downhill double track through high meadows leading into a section of smooth ridgetop singletrack. It all ends with a nosedive descent. Highlights: Pavement climb, Briery Branch Reservoir, waterbars, views, steep downhill, smooth single track

A good trail for an overnight bacpack in. Carry all the water you need. The trail up to the ridge is a good hike up, moderately strenuous. Once up on the ridge it is a easy trail. Typically I go up Bear Hollow trail to the ridge but it is the same for the actual trail head off of Rt 257.
