A flowy beginner-friendly trail that starts at the campground.

Overview

Please don't ride when the trail is wet.

Yield to hikers and climbing riders.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Locals often like to say that Limekiln feels like it's downhill in both directions; frequent grade reversals mean that the climbs are never too long, and long straight sections mean that you can move pretty fast on this trail.

Limekiln is beginner friendly; there is little climbing and few technical features, though beginners should keep an eye open for a couple rooty and rocky areas. The relative easiness of this trail and its accessibility to the campground make it a a favorite trail with families.

Limekiln meets Walnut Trail at the Hoosier's Nest.

Love this trail. Fast and flowing. Low effort. Trailhead is adjacent Walnut if starting from hoosier nest which is great as well i hear. Jul 18, 2015
This is a great entry level challenge for kids. Our boys (7 and 10) loved it. Only negative, not long enough... May 30, 2017
