For the most part the trail is pretty easy to moderate, with it's moments of challenge, far and few between as were the roads, you really felt miles from anywhere! The length does bring up the challenge aspect some and not being a loop means either a shuttle or out and back, which would double the length.
Note: The Singletracks.com phone app does not show the section north of the lake. Cross the bridge and the trail is on the left, just after it. I missed because I had to go from memory and there was construction on the bridge at the time. The north section is just over the bridge on the left or west side of the bridge.
Trail blaze white and all the major road crossings have a big WOMBLE trail sign. Until you get to mile marker 27, coming from the SW, that is. I am not entirely sure that the section north of the lake is still part of the WOMBLE. I think my Garmin shorted it about 2 miles, due to the twistyness of some sections of the trail. I finally did find the trail head, but had already called my shuttle (Wife) and she was already on her way. By the way thanks Tammy!
