Trail in the area near Springfield,
“The best loop of the area, this is fun singletrack with some obstacles and short climbs.”

Do not ride the horse trails, they are marked and no fun anyway. There's hunting here in fall so be careful!
Pick this trail up somewhere along its loop or start at the mountain bike parking area. From the parking area, head to the obvious trailhead with a map posted. Head straight out and make first right then the trail starts on right. All obstacles and difficult areas can be bypassed.

The trail is a mostly hard packed singletrack surface. Its miles and turns are marked in the clockwise direction, but there are no rules against going the other way around this loop. There are plenty of long stretches of fun twisty songletrack, but it does have a few connectors between these sections on old doubletrack trail. Some sections will be challenging for intermediate riders, but don't let this discourage you from enjoying these trails. The harder sections are short.
