A number of nice trails drop off of South Ridge Road. Here’s the best way to try them all in one ride. In keeping with the “Sidehill” tradition of Bent Creek, I called this ride Southside and omitted the “hill”—in name only, though, because it’s still very hilly! The ride surface is 6 miles of single track and 2.4 miles of forest road. Highlights include great single track, short and steep ups and downs, rooty section, and interpretive signs.
