Overview

A great ride at Hillman State Gamelands. Spans most of the Time Trial Loop, starting at the Switchback Trail (Time Trial Segment #1) with an extension on to the Airport Trails.

Description

One of many routes at Hillman State Gamelands (aka Bavington), this takes you along ridges without a lot of climbing. It's not very fast, but it has some moderate technical riding. This is a great trail for singlespeeds.

Watch for frequent downed trees and a steep drop or two. These trails tend to do well after rains and is a go-to spot when other trail systems are rather muddy.
