“A grueling 8 or 3 mile trail that will test an intermediate rider.”
— Philip Darden
Get a running start on the bridge to begin climbing the bluff with momentum. The trail has off-camber sections, rock gardens, dips, and short climbs, and runs along former terraced farmland as it flows through stands of pines and hardwoods. This trail has it all: fun runs, slightly technical climbs, narrow bridges, loose rocks, and steep slopes that will test your ability to stay on the trail. The labyrinth-like arrangement will give an experience of déjà vu on repetitive sections.
Take a breather on the straight-ish western edge of the park property before navigating the Mommas Milkshake feature down to the creek. The terrain requires you climb back up the hill before passing over more rock gardens and ride perpendicular to the severe slopes back to a skill-testing drop to the bridge.
There is an 8 mile and 3 mile option along this trail. To choose between the two, follow the corresponding signs.
