Need to Know

This trail will typically dry out slowly after rain. The parking lot is located across the street from the trail.

The Phase 2 parking lot is located off of the west side of Africa Road just north of Cheshire Road. The Phase 2 trail is on the east side of Africa Road across from the entrance to the parking lot. The trail, which is ridden counterclockwise, is about 6.5 miles long and is well marked.
