Need to Know

The "Knot Head Loop" is now a section of the Mt. Zion main trail, this is not an optional trail but part of the base trail. This brings the Mt. Zion trail length to 10 miles. The old north section of 357 between the old entrance and exit of the Knott Head Loop is no longer an option to skip the Knott Head Loop.


Great open pavilion to relax under. No required fees but donations are accepted at the kiosk. Lots of trail candy and a cool bone yard section. Be sure to stop and sign the jeans at "blue jean alley." Lots of berms and jumps. All jumps have by-passes or roll-overs.

"The Biggest Little Trail in Mississippi" - Great flowing singletrack with lots of variety - tight and technical, open and flowing, climbs and descents. There is a beginner friendly loop for inexperienced riders, 9-mile 'RC" loop for the intermediate riders has over 40 wooden features including a 14'see-saw, walls, berms and bridges (one is 175' long). Has a short 'black diamond' section with elevated bridge, skinny and creek jump.

Fridge at pavilion keeps your drinks cold and there's a popsicle in the freezer for when you finish.

Neat trails making the most of the terrain and natural features and packing a lot of riding into a compact area. Good signage where needed for the various optional length loops. Nice rhythm of climbing then running downhill, good flow in most parts, some sections more twisty and technical, lots of wooden features, bridges, ramps, berms, a few fun jumps. Entertaining trailside signage and artifacts. Run by enthusiastic, friendly and helpful guys. Nov 11, 2018
