Overview

This route provides an easy 8-9 mile ride for beginner/intermediate riders as well as riders who are unfamiliar with the trail network at Camp Robinson. Other than a few rock gardens, the route is not very technical.

Description

DIRECTIONS: START on 10 Bridges Trail. TURN LEFT onto Center Road. TURN RIGHT onto Porta Potty and STAY LEFT. Ride Porta Potty CLOCKWISE to the junction with Outer Loop. TURN RIGHT onto Outer Loop. STAY RIGHT on Outer Loop at the junction with Airport Loop. CROSS Center Road to Yucca OUT to the Parking Lot.

Ride up the road from the parking lot and look for the TenBridges trailhead on the left.Pedal across the micro culvert and be greeted by the mellow steady grade of the trail. The trail weaves through the pines, hickory nut trees, and oaks as it traverses the top of purdham hill.

You'll warm up fast as you navigate the turns. Enjoy the many bridges as you follow the singletrack to Center Road. From here you get a respite of threading the trees as you move through a more open and wide corridor. This section ends with a sharp right onto Porta Potty. Settle in more tight turns as the trail continues to weave through the hardwoods.

After a brief descent on a relaxed grade, you'll have a chance to catch your breath at the junction of Porta Potty and Outer Loop.

Stay left to start a moderately rocky transistion onto Outer Loop. The first part of is a bit chattery over broken rocks and roots. The trail eventually transitions to smooth singletrack that twists and turns all the way back to Center Road.

Cross another micro culvert and stay slightly right as you cross Center Road to Yucca.

Settle in for a steady pedal through a series of smooth straight aways and easy switchbacks until you cross the clear cut. Be sure to follow the signs.

Once you are back in the treeline on the southside of the clearcut, stay left to stay on Yucca. The trail finishes with a climb through a rock garden followed by relatively smooth singletrack that dumps you out onto the road that connects to the parking lot.
