Rode Cliatt Creek and Rock Dam along with the back entrance from rock dam to the old forest road and my cheapo computer only read about 8 miles. The map at the Mistletoe office says the correct mileage is 10 miles. Any word on the correct mileage? My computer doesn't appear to be malfunctioning....rode New Bartram yesterday and my computer agrees with the posted mile markers to within a few hundredths of a mile.
This was my first time on Mistletoe, so I just followed the most worn path, especially on the Cliatt Creek Trail, where I didn't notice as many blazes as there were on the Rock Dam Trail, so it's very possible that I missed part of the trail. After looking at the map provided at the office or online at www.gastateparks.org/item/147824 is it possible that your track cut out part of the Cliatt Creek Trail and included the Canyon Loop Trail? One day I plan on going back out and riding all the trails they have listed in the map.
That being said, I had a great time on this trail....really enjoyed the rocky off-camber (rode CCW) and the gulley ride. Different feel from the other trails that I have ridden.
Rode in from Ridge rd this morning. The connector had one tree down on the rd portion and 1 tree down on the single track. Overall mistletoe trail is in good shape. Starting to get a bit overgrown here and there but overall in good shape.
