A loop of tight, twisty singletrack around Howard Eaton Reservoir.

John Beeson

Overview

The trail is broken up into three sections: the North Loop, The Pines, and the Southwest Loop and Spur. These sections form a semi-continuous trail of approximately 10+ miles of single/doubletrack that wraps around Eaton Reservoir.

Description

The trails are still being refined with portions seemingly recently dug. The newly cut portions are uncomfortably tight and twisty, likely intended for a fatbike.

Directions and signage have much room for improvement. There are green/orange markings on the trees in what could be assumed is the preferred direction.

For The Pines sections, enter and exit are at the same location - once you enter, start by going to the left. For the Southwest Spur and Southwest Loop trails, it is a bit like a bowl of spaghetti with trails intersecting and branching in all directions. For someone who knows the trails, it could be a lot of fun.

The North Loop's seemingly preferred entry is through the small open field - but look at the tracks at the intersections because some branches lead you in for a bit and then stop.

A great deal of work is being done here with much effort being spent on the log/stone bridges over muddy portions. Like many trails in this area, the ups and downs are highlighted by tree roots at the tops and mud pits at the bottoms.
