Old Airport part of the Bavington (Hillman State Park) trail system. Trails are meticulously maintained. Even during the wet months most trails remain pretty dry.
This section is mostly fast and flowy. As always within the system there are some tight, technical areas. There are almost no rock gardens. This section is typically ridden along with the SSX Trail
and Figure 8 Trail
Be sure to check out the Pine Race Track
mid way through the trail. If you make a lap on the Pine Race Track
, make the first right after you return to the start to continue on the Old Airport Trail
