    So we went back, this time realizing where to go it was easy to find. The trail is terrific looping single track hike. It is pretty easy to a moderate hike, but has enough of elevation change to make to make it interesting/a little bit of a workout. The only downside is at the far end of the trail there are several loops with little signage. We got turned around and ended up back in the same place. So, when the trail splits, either stay to the left and keep to the left, or stay to the right and keep to the right.

    We can't rate and review this trail because we missed the trailhead today. Doh. When you make a left onto Crooked Oak Rd off Old 441 Road, you drive for a while, passing a water tower, under power lines, and wind back into the mountains. You'll probably pass right by the trailhead on your left as the White Twister trail map sign pictured above is a good ten paces deep into the woods at the trailhead. But there is a road closure gate immediately following (and perhaps within sight of) the trailhead, a large turn-around/parking area 1/8 of a mile or so past the trailhead, then a second road closure gate a hundred yards past the turn-around that will end your drive (if closed like it was today). Either park in the turn-around or at the first road closure gate, then walk back the way you drove in to find the trail which is now on your right. FYI, you can park in the turn around, walk up the road (under the power lines and past the second road closure gate) and after a few hundred yards a well marked and well defined single track biking trail begins on your left. It doesn't offer many vistas, but is a pleasantly winding single track with nary a soul on it on a perfect Sunday afternoon. After maybe two to three miles of hiking we crossed a small creek, came to a fork labeled cut through, took it to the left (leaving our trail), which brought us to another single track labeled biking (possibly the White Twister?) along a good sized creek. Now having too many options and not knowing where to go, we simply turned around and retraced our hike back to the car.
