Roseby's Rock

Average Rating:    (0 of 5)

This is an partially an old rail bed, now converted into a 4-wheeler trail, mind you, 4-wheelers rule, and they rarely see bikes. Trail goes up valley on long abandoned rail bed, crosses through creek about six or seven times, goes up some fairly steep banks in places, and is very scenic. This trail is MUDDY on account of the 4-wheelers. You can go from beginning to Glen Easton, about 7 miles from start. Trail is very easy in some places, but has some technical spots extreme mud, big rocks, and steeps in some places. It`s lots of fun, and, on a warm day, the creek crossings are a welcome way to cool off. Make sure your ride is well lubed before doing the Rock.

Take the right fork, which is Grave Creek road. go six miles up the creek road, and, just after going up a short hill, there is a very wide area on the left to park. Unload bikes there, then proceed on out road about 200 yards to a bridge on left. Cross bridge, turn right, continue up road. This is where ride begins. About 1/2 mile up this dirt road, there is a 4-wheeler trail to right that crosses the creek. Then the fun begins.
