This is the anchor trail for a 3 trail system totaling 6.4 miles in Anderson Indiana.

Matt Hendey

Overview

This is a one direction trail. Never ride wet!

Description

This is the Rangeline Nature Preserve trail system. This trail is smooth, fast, and flowing but sometimes tight and technical, demanding that you pay attention at ALL Times. The trail starts at the north side of the parking lot and once you enter the trail you immediately start with a short descent onto the trail with some rocks on either side. The trail makes a hard left which brings you into a flat, sometimes sandy section. This is a taste of the surfaces you'll see throughout the trail. As you ride you come across banked turns, moguls, man-made bridges, elevated trail, log crossings, tight turns, and even some deer once in a while.

When you ride be aware of the trail markers. The Green arrows will keep you on the Novice trail, Main Loop. The Blue arrows mark the more difficult section that connect back into the Green Novice Loop. Black arrows mark the Expert trails splitting off both the Blue and Green sections of the course but all trails take you back to the parking lot. You may be surprised how much trail is packed into this Park when you advance to the Blue and Black sections of the trail system. Note, this is a One-Way trail.
