Access: Turn south on Wiltshire Drive 1.9 miles west of the 95/62 intersection in Oak Ridge. See map. Park where the pavement ends and the gravel begins.

This is private land that is gradually being developed. Access rights may change, please obey posted signs. This area is used by hikers, equestrians, and bicyclists. As of June, 1996, a gravel road to a new cell tower has been bulldozed up the C-E watershed. As of July, 1997, the 1.4 miles from A-B is being developed into a subdivision. As of January 1999, a house sents at F.

See trail map.

Description: There is also a reasonably flat two miles of dirt road (G-H) leading west off the gravel of Wiltshire Drive along the reservation perimeter fence. This trail has several creek crossings and emerges behind the Senior House in the Country Club Estates off of Gum Hollow Rd.

For a more aerobic workout requiring a little more skill, try the loop (C-E-D), or experiment with the single tracks that climb to the top of the ridge. F-D follows a creek and is the least developed trail. There are also some muddy jeep roads on the south face across from the golf course.
