Yeah - Thanks for the work - I've had a couple of good rides there this summer. Last week, I took a bad turn because of the construction and ended up at the power lines way north of where I thought I was, but it was educational.
Just curious how to access hillbilly heaven. Been riding at Leom for a few years but not aware of this trail. I've mostly started on the trail off wolf neck over nemba bridge, back to rocky pond to loop trail, down the rocky trail to the pine needle forest and back out. Sounds like I'm missing some good stuff off the elm st/parameter end.
Hillbilly Heaven is down in the south end of the forest. HH connects up to Wolf Rock Rd down near the end where it meets up with Hells Highway. I usually ride that area from the gate on Lucas Rd so that its mostly uphill on the way in and down hill on the way back.
You can find rides and segments on Strava.
I can let you know when I'm riding if you PM your email address.
Here is one of my rides. The bottom (or south) part of the topo is Hillbilly heaven. Once out, I believe I worked my way Brooks Rd to Parameter, then into some more ridiculously fun singletrack which eventually takes me into, what I believe you refer to as, Pine Needle Forest. I'm a noob in LSF so I may have my names wrong
So we found the way in on Elm Street yesterday. Other than the rocks being slippery as S**t, we found some nice trails. We entered immediately on the right, which led to a brand new trail. Still very soft, so please, if you ride there, use it because it will be a nice one. It is obvious some real effort has gone into armoring wet areas and bridging a bunch of walls. Looking forward to doing some more exploring at that end. Now I just need to find a way to link these to Hillbilly Heaven without going on the fire roads Pete
Glad you found your way around. The new trail was recently put in to bypass the logged area and requires more work with the rogue hoe to remove the duff. The old trail was lame anyways and bordered by pricker bushes.
