Need to Know

The Knott Head loop is an official part of the racecourse, no bypass. Also, at the beginning of Knott Head, there is a short, small "freeride" loop featuring big drops, berms, and jumps. This loop is not yet apart of the racecourse.

Description

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.

Johnny is about to sail over the creek jump. It's a 10' flight that is so much fun.
