The marked trail on here isn't bad at all. some puddles here and there. If you keep going past the Cold Springs intersection it gets pretty gnarly in spots. Deep washouts, large puddles that aren't avoidable and it is very rocky.

Beautiful trail for off roading or an easy trail ride. Encountered about 6-12 inches of snow on the trail. The entire route was previously driven on so the snow was packed but slightly slippery. It was 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside. 4x4 recommended on this trail for poor weather conditions like snow or heavy rain. Many other roads and 4x4 trails run off of Ridge Road if desired. Started at Ridge Rd off of Shippensburg Rd and ended at Hammond’s Rocks with a small detour down Woodrow Rd. Exited the State Forest via Cold Springs Rd to Pine Grove Rd. Did not see any wildlife. Michaux State Forest is beautiful and well maintained. Would so this trail again.

Very easy road, marking as tech 2 since the snow can make it tricky without 4wd.
