Unmapped short cut single track trail between two fire roads at the bottom. Most likely an older grown up fire road. Fun in both directions!
The fire road goes through this culvert and under the parkway. Nice with about an inch or two of water running through it. Bats too!
Gravel road climb!
Under the parkway off the gravel road.
Grassy road climb from the parkway to Bluff Mountain.
The view off to the right on the fire road climb up to Bluff Mountain.
Thunder Ridge off in the distance.
The old Belle Cove trail is off to the left here dropping down the other side of the mountain from the Saltlog Gap trail. It was destroyed during the 1995 flood and was never resurrected. A sign notes its permanent closing.
You can see a remnant of the Belle Cove trail start here where folks have been walking to read the sign. Not much noticeable after that though.
The trail drops down and runs the top of a cliff overlooking this view and an old, but still somewhat operational stone quarry.
The trail disappears for a bit as it has been cut through by the quarry. Ride down into the quarry road and keep an eye to your left. Short hike-a-bike up to the rest of the trail.
