We rode south out of the Ashland Campground, toward the town of Bramwell, on trail #12-14-15. We rode most of the trails. It was quite muddy,rather than dusty, the trails in Green, were more like roads, the Blue trails were more like trails, we didn't try the black. The landscape has some sandstone ledges, many trees and vines and some magnolia trees. The area has been logged off.
One of the blue trails took us right thru a vein of coal, there’s good size chuncks of coal, Pretty.
We came across the Belcher Cemetery. GPS#37*21.987N 081*19.110W There are some head stones dating from 1889, and the earliest of 2010. We found out these cemeteries have been family plots for many years. Bottom land is at a premium, so they place the cemetery near the top.

We did find a sandstone outcrop, with trees on top, and the rocks are falling away. Someone has put a foot long board inside, to support the top portion.
