Description

Schooner Trace Trail is by far the most technically demanding trail in Brown County State Park. This expert trail features very narrow singletrack, steep climbs, and frequent technical features that require advanced skills to ride. Expect lots of rock gardens, ledges, large logs, tight switchbacks, and even areas that combine all of the above!

The trail winds through a beautiful part of the park, so be sure to take a few moments to appreciate the hills surrounding the trail as well. Even highly skilled riders are likely to find certain features they'd rather walk on this trail, so don't be disappointed if you have to do some hike-a-bike. Due to the extreme technical difficulty and relative remoteness of the trail, riders are encouraged to stop and scout features before riding them.

The Schooner Trace trailheads are located on either end of the Walnut Trail.
