Fast and flowy.

Overview

  • The direction of travel for this trail alternates based on the day of the week. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday head clockwise. Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday head counter-clockwise.
  • Night riding is allowed, but the park closes at 10:00 p.m.

Description

The trails are more or less a lollipop system with another lollipop offshoot from the main loop. You'll enter the trailhead and there will be a map board beside it. Upon getting to the split you'll see a sign telling you the direction for the day.

This is a brand new trail built in co-op between the Army Corp of Eng and IMBA. Multiple SORBA chapters helped put the finishing touches on this trail and it will only get faster as its ironed in. Super fast fun and very flowy is how I would describe this awesome new addition to the NEGA area. All the fun of FATS without the drive!

Nice easy ride until a thunderstorm started pushing me. The wind was nice, but the thunder in the distance worried me. 6.9mi

Great ride. Bring your lungs. It will take as much speed as you can give it. Pumping all the rolling compressions is a blast, too. May 29, 2016
Fantastic ride. Lots of pedaling with short climbs (riding clockwise) and speedy downhills. The rolling section along the north side of the lake is a hoot! Fast and flowy as described. Jul 17, 2016
