Directions - route 9 south, exit 7, right after end of gardrail theres a spot for a couple cars on right pulloff, or for a different spot, follow exit 7 LONG offramp to end, take a right, take your first right, take another right at TEE..  Follow till your under the exit ramp, its an abandoned road that turns to dirt..

Description - This is a pretty cool area that seems to be occupied mainly by Dirt Bikes..   The trails are very cool though and un-spoiled..   Not sure how cool it is to ride here, there are several no-tresspassing signs on some trails so be-warned.. Labeled as N.T. on map.. Trail range from fire road, to fire road with short rocky sections, some nice singletrack, some muddy single track, more like 1.5 track, whatever, some really nice rocky singletrack with rock gardens and such..   One nice steep slick rock downhill, 20 feet or so on the north side..  Forest ranges from tall pine trees to short trees in laurel areas..  Found one really cool extended downhill, the section that follows the exit ramp on the south side..   Not too many trails are marked, We saw some faded white dots, some blue yellow ribbon, some orange ribbon, but nothing that clear..  Made the trails different colors on the map for differentiation only..   Trails are long with few turns so finding routes should be easy.. 

The section that parallels the power lines is pretty cool.. A bit MX rutted, but very cool sections, feels like your in british columbia, maybe because it was raining..  All in all some great trails separated by moderate double track and fire roads (yes for good measure)..   

Pre-ride Music:  Anything By Whitesnake should keep you movin..
Total Miles:  22.49
Elevation Change Feet - 9 mile loop is about 900 vertical, lots of short ups and downs..
