Be aware that these trails are still in need of a little fine tuning. There are a few spots that need some of the corridor cleared and need some downed trees removed. The OORC is working diligently with work days on September 27th-28th, 2014 set to do some serious trail maintenance. Until then, we have a suggested route that should set you up for success when riding.
Park at Knuckles Creek road trailhead, ride back up service rd 1476 to the fire tower loop trail (29), go down and continue on fire tower trail (35) eventually hitting the intersection of (28) note that this is easy to miss because the sign is a little obscured. It's a left at the intersection. You'll arrive at (26) which is Knuckle connect trail, be sure to turn right here and you'll see (25) off the road on your left. It's uphill to (23) staying right. More uphill to (22) There is no map at 22 but a post. Stay right and shortly you'll come to (21) just a hole, no sign or map yet....go left here onto South bench trail and continue, eventually going by (10) stay right. You'll end up at (11) which is trail of the ancients, go right. Very soon, you'll arrive at (12), go right again and uphill to (19) and across the road to (20) which begins Azalea falls trail, arriving back at 21 (no post or sign) staying left and 22 going left again. Downhill back to 23 and left to 25 and Knuckles Creek rd and left back to the trail head you started at which is uphill 2-3 miles.
If you have more than 1 vehicle, you might want to skip the uphill back to your car on knuckles creek rd.
