Fruitcake

 

Trail Directions

To get to Fruitcake from Cedar Grove, ride to the end of Cedar Connector where you will find the trail forks, with a rocky descent slightly to the right and a steep climb 90° to the left. The descent to the right is Fruitcake (see image) and the climb to the left is Blonde Jeans. Ride downhill (north, descending along Hatter Creek) on the dirt doubletrack for 0.15 miles.

At mile 0.15, bear left onto a nicer, shady dirt doubletrack. Climb gradually for about 0.1 mile, then descend to mile 0.4, where you will come to a grassy, low spot.

The trail appears to go straight, but that's a dead end to fake out the moto crowd. Instead, turn HARD right into an area that might appear to be overgrown. Be persistent though, because Fruitcake is right there.

Descend from mile 0.4 to 0.6 in a fun tunnel of greenery, then bear left at 0.6 (if you want a shortcut back to Cedar Grove, turn right at 0.6)

At mile 0.65, see another minor side road on the right. Stay left and descend a few hundred yards into a grassy old homestead meadow.

Hug the left edge of the meadow, where you will find that Fruitcake continues descending, ever more steeply.

At mile 1.1, arrive at a wide dirt road. There is a sweet water hole on the left in the shade. This is Rolls Royce Rd. Turn left to travel on Rolls Royce Rd and end up at Rock Creek Rd in a mile or so.
