A nice intermediate trail with roots/rocks and some short, steep climbs.

Overview

Description

Maps are available at the parking area, and five well-marked loops are available, ranging from a one-mile family ride to a 10.5-11.2 mile (my GPS measures this shorter than the trail map does) intermediate/moderately technical ride. There are several short, steep climbs, including one that I've never seen cleared. There are also a couple of ramps built as options for more advanced riders.

The trail offers beautiful views of Lake Jordan and the Swayback Bridge from the Black and Red Trails.

It's rarely busy, and trail runners/hikers are generally very aware/polite to bikers. Has a water hose and enclosed changing area for post ride clean-up.

There was a guy named Chad Hungerford who cleared that "short, steep climb" just about every time. Oct 17, 2015
Spent the weekend doing some quality miles throughout this trail system, and it was fantastic. Great course, well maintained and relatively challenging (at spots). All in all, this is a fantastic ride for all levels of experience. I will certainly be out there again the next time I'm in the Montgomery area. Nov 7, 2016
