This pretty ride starts out with a steep climb up the side of Close Mountain. It then gradually falls down the contour lines on a gated forest road before dumping onto Maxwell Run, a beautiful, moss-covered rock stream. Be prepared to get on and off your bike a lot as you cross and recross the run and travel over some pretty rocky terrain. Highlights: Rocky trail, stinging nettles, stream crossings, small cascades and waterfalls
