Description

Fun trail with lots of rocks, roots, sand and some climbs. The trail sheds water well and is generally rideable right after a rain.

The first part of the trail is fairly flat and twisty. The first climb is an old creek bed and gets tough for a second before flattening back out. A few miles in you'll find some fast downhills before dropping into the pines. Lots of root filled drops give way to rocky climbs around mile 5.

There is a quick descent into a series of switchbacks and they are followed by another climb. Pick your line and hit it!

The last few miles are a mix of pine trees, rocks, short punchy climbs, and a short flat section.

Have fun!

2 mile trail is a nice warmup trail. Cross the parking lot and the other 12 Miles is a nice trail with some sand, roots and rocks. Great workout. 7.2mi

Challenging climbs but lots of fun twisty, technical areas and no shortage of sand.

Fun trail and can be easy or hard as you want with the multiple short cuts. Even though the trail is separated by the parking lot, the complete trail is considered 14 miles and 1 loop. Jul 10, 2014
