This ride takes you through thick stands of oak, maple, and birch trees and down wide horse paths where the views of the foliage are fantastic. The peak season for viewing the changing of the leaves is generally between the middle of October and early November. Most of the ride, because of the number of trees in the forest, is well protected from the wind; so winter rides are feasible as long as there's no snow on the ground. Terrain: Mainly singletrack with some doubletrack fire roads and a section of paved road.
