Trail Overview

This northern segment of the Ellis Trail is even rockier than the southern portion, with big boulders embedded in the trail, roots, and tons of loose small rocks on the surface of the trail. The southern end of the northern trail starts on the dirt road where Ellis Trail South ends, at a marked trail sign. It goes through a beautiful pine tree forest, but as you continue north, the forest thins out. There has been a lot of clear-cutting and forestry management here, so there is a lot of sun exposure, wide open views, and downed logs that have been cut. This trail is trickier for an ATV due to so many rocks and boulders but is easier for a dirt bike because you can choose your line better. At the north end, the trail has a big stream crossing that is 20 feet long but is shallow and easy.

Difficulty

This is an intermediate ATV trail due to the big boulders and lots of rocks on the trail, but it's easier for dirt bikers because they can pick their line better. The difficulty rating is a 5 for ATVs and a 4 for dirt bikes.
