The opening and closing of the trail is determined by the Park Ranger on duty. If these condition are not updated, please feel free to call (614) 837-8760.
The trail was built by COMBO (Central Ohio Mountain Bike Organization). The trail can be accessed from a parking lot located off Mason Road.
Trail starts out as hard pack dirt through rolling woods then turns into sandy-rocky singletrack once you get up onto the ridge. Has a good mix of climbs and descents that sometimes has rocks/sandy patches. There are a few ladder bridge crossings. All are pretty wide and they aren't very long.
