More details

From the main NTN South Trailhead, ride on the Grom Loop. When you reach the intersection, the route will drop a bit over a hillside into two big bermed turns. Enjoy the view of tall open trees once the forest open ups.

The trail keeps following a narrow singletrack just above Carp River. It ducks in and out of small drainages. Eventually, the route provides some quick climbs and hair-raising bends, followed by a descent down to the river. It then intersects with Forget-Me-Not and the Carp River Trail.
