In the general vacinity of Windham Mountain ski area. Act like you're going there, then take Rt 296 to Rt 40, take right on Rt 40 in Hensonville, then Rt 40 to Rt 56 in Maplecrest, left on Rt 56 to Peck Road, which leads to the parking lot and trailhead for the Peck Road Trail. Bike up that to the top of Elm Ridge. The Graveyard starts at the top and goes down the western side of Elm Ridge.

Summary:
Very fun stuff. Single track starts off as a climb but really breaks into a great flow. Up down and around the ridge. Very minimalist trail design with limited use of man made devices. The ride down is so fun. These trails are more on the advanced side. There is work being done by the lbs Windham Mountain Outfitters at the bottom of the ridge to the left just after the wet area. These trails are more mild and still fun.

Recommended Route:
Drive to the parking lot on the corner of state route 23 and Cross rd. Park. Get your gear and bike on and cross 23 to the south east(be careful riding on 23 as the cars a usually going 60 mph and it is on a turn) follow the escarpment trail to the summit of elm ridge this is an epic climb. Once you get to the top there is some very nice single track that runs along elm ridge. There are also atv trails lower on the ridge than can be fun. After you have had your fun on top of the ridge ride back to the hiking trail and enjoy the super fun downhill back to your car. If you still want more hit the trail on the bottom before the wet area.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
North South Lake, Hunter Mtn, Overlook.

Summary:
Not easy, either up or down. Mostly singletrack, some of it very steep. Definitely a test of climbing ability to get up this, and of skill and nerve to ride down it.

There is other, less testing singletrack available from the top of Elm Ridge, the Elm Ridge Trail. Riding down the Peck Road Trail can also be challenging, especially if it's wet, as much of the trail is a streambed and some of it flows over nice big smooth very slippery-when-wet rocks.
