Cross post from our regional forum
A Jefferson National Forest ride. Starting with a very scenic loop behind the Roaring Run furnace.
A few views along the way
The loop trail drops you back down to Roaring Run trail below the stairway section to the falls
Back to the parking lot
Onto Iron Ore trail, beside the outhouses
For a long hard climb on an old iron mining road
This must have been where they loaded wagons with iron ore
A fair number of blowdowns along the way
Regrouping at the junction with the Hoop Hole trail
Onto skinny singletrack for a while
I was there too
First of 5 or so creek crossings
Paralleling and crossing Hipes Branch a number of times
The creek was getting bigger and bigger, and deep
At the end, a crossing of Stony Run to insure no one had dry feet for the remainder of the ride.
Long ago this was a nice house
