Description

Use the Riverview Gardens - Entry/Exit Connector from the former clubhouse parking lot to access Oh Deer!

This trail is on the difficult side of intermediate due to the terrain it was built on. Be on the look out for the 5 bridges along the length of this trail. They are built plenty wide (36" plus) and are fun to ride.

Three switchback turns keep things interesting and help extend the length of the trail.

There's a deceivingly large amount of vertical descent and gain packed into this trail - carry as much speed through the downhill sections as you can to aid on the ensuing climbs!

Keep an eye out for wildlife while you're riding - deer, turkey, woodchuck and other common woodland creatures are not uncommon on the trail.

When you get to the end of the trail, ride to the large willow tree to your right. When you get to the willow tree, turn left onto the paved trail and ride the paved trail back to the top of the ravine. When the paved trail turns into woodchips, take a left and head back to the start of Oh Deer!

Not for a newbie! I had to walk around a few very steep corners. Big guys beware.

Course is in great shape. I couple of the switchbacks are a tad slick though. 2mi
