Description

The Beginner loop trail is located across the street from Phase 1 trail parking lot. Ride the loop section (clockwise/counterclockwise) based on day of the week directions. It trail is an awesome start for riders new to the sport or as a warm up before hitting the Alum Creek Phase 1 Trail. The trail was built and is maintained by COMBO (Central Ohio Mountain Bike Organization).

COMBO volunteers made some massive improvements to the skills park and beginner loop since 2016. New bridges, gravel fill-in's and of areas notorious for poor drainage.Features geared towards the beginner/learning rider also have been added or improved upon, and new signage added in 2019. More improvements are planned for 2020. THANKS COMBO for this work!
