Moonshine is a straight-through, U-shaped trail that starts and ends on Backwoods Road, intersecting with Rattler halfway through. The trail can be run in either direction and offers nearly a perfect mirror of the trail on each side of the U. No matter which direction you travel, you first encounter an extreme off-camber descent down a shade-covered and often muddy trail that leans your top half hard into the surrounding oak trees. You then descend a steep and slippery 5-foot limestone wall, where you cross over Rattler and attempt to climb up a steep and slippery 5-foot limestone wall. To exit the trail, you ascend a shade-covered, often muddy track that leans extremely off-camber into hard oak trees. This trail is best for experienced drivers in heavily modified vehicles with large tires, lockers, and body armor. Vehicles with tops should avoid this trail. Body damage is a high possibility.
