4 Miles of dirt road to gated FSR. Left gate goes around Russel and Back Creek drainages, about 7 miles of beautiful double track (no vehicles to worry about!) to lower gate. 2.5 miles of hard pack dirt road to paved road. Left on paved road (Fish Hatchery) back to Mt Grove Methodist. (Note: the right gate at the 4 mile mark goes STRAIGHT UP 3.1 miles to the Table Rock parking lot ~ 1800 vertical feet of climbing)

Summary:
The Fish Hatchery Trail is a good begineer/intermediate mtn bike ride. Not too much fun when the ground is soggy. A few very nice views. I saw a bear the last time I rode it.

Recommended Route:
I prefer parking at the Fish Hatchery picnic area and doing the loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Raidercamp
Raspberry Ridge/Barkhouse/Ripshin/Headleys

Summary:
This trail's gotten old. All it does anymore is wear you out. I kinda grew off this one when I took the training wheels off. Get off road, take the logging roads, trespass, do whatever. It's mountain biking.
Check out that road at the tree with the 7, 3 and a half miles from the church. Cross creek make right, climb to a little place I like to call bgr. Cross the road and climb more if you're hard core like me. Wata bah city babeeeee!
Hard right on BRG switchbacks on horse trails to the rocks of raven. Holy hucking!! 12 foot drops!!

IF YOU RIDE THIS TRAIL, YOU'RE A GURRRRRRL!!!

Recommended Route:
Park at da hizzy. Pick up a crew and meet me at da hidee.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Check it out behind kmart. The stuff behind Freedom JROTC don't get caught. Tree of 7, of course. Check me out at the Pizza Station in Oak Hill!

Summary:
No, you should not park at the church. Park on the Blue Gravel Road. It is a much cooler place to park.

Recommended Route:
Same as below. With the new logging roads on the upside, there may be a new way to ride this.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Blue Ridge Escarpment in Burke County is full of trails.
