Rides That Use This Trail: Boyd Branch Loop


Easy, hardpacked trail with an easy, armored rock creek crossing on the upper end. From Boyd Branch Road to the creek crossing, the trail has been graded and graveled, smoothing out a formerly rocky, rooty stretch. The creek crossing itself is no longer technical, with large flat stones paving either side and a hardened, gravel bottom in the crossing itself. No major elevation changes, but if you're heading downhill, this trail can be fast and very fun.

Can be combined with Boyd Branch Road to make a nice, short loop. Great for beginners who want to sample some singletrack!

This trail is located in the Bent Creek area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Bent Creek trails list page.

Jordan M. said: Billy: good idea, and eventually we hope to do just that. If we had enough time, we'd put directions to each trailhead for each trail in the entire network. To start, we're focusing on heavily-used trails that we call our best Hikes and Rides. Thanks for your comments!
