Our route cleverly combines clockwise and counterclockwise loop at Gold Branch seamlessly so you will not realize we are doing several trails twice! We will do all the hills and some twice giving us 1,000 feet elevation gain. We will do all the trails and some twice giving us 7 miles. So nice so nice we do it twice. Director of Events has authorized this as D3 due to fast pace and elevation.
This is beautiful area near the lake formed by Morgan Falls Dam.
Gold Branch has many rocks and roots, so not for beginners. Recent D2+ experience to join the fun. We will start promptly so plan to arrive a little early to check in and meet the group. Early morning start to beat the summer heat.
This is a CRNRA unit, there is a $5 parking fee unless you have an annual pass. There are no bathroom facilities at this unit so plan accordingly.
