This is followed by a demanding trek on the hillside with some steep downhills, gradual climbs, and ice age boulders. The third section winds through the tall native grass and small trees. This is a turn it loose section with lots of course changes and a really fast track.

To reach the trailhead from Independence near US75, follow CR3525 north. Turn west on CR4800 toward Elk City State Park.
