Michaux State Forest - Flat Rock

Average Rating:    (0 of 5)

I took "Directions to Trailhead and Trail Description" from Bigfoot's trail description. Thanks. I only wanted to put a listing as "Michaux State Forest..." as I want people, MTBers, to notice this trail. ITS HOLDS THE ROUGHEST X-COUNTRY RACE COURSE AROUND!!! So if you don't like rocks, more rocks, roots, and more rocks then you won't like this place. I didn't mention mud, as this place seems to drain well (I've raced at Pine Grove Furnace twice, both times in the rain).
