Overview

Winter weather can bring on a mud season.
This is a quick introduction to the Moscow Mountain Trails. MAMBA sells a trails map through their website which covers all of the trails in this great trail system.

Need to Know

The trails are not well marked, so be alert the first time you head out on a ride. Use the MTB Project MTB Project mobile app.

The entire trail system is on private land, so please be respectful.

Description

This is a great introductory ride to the Moscow Mountain trail system since this is the only loop that has marked trails. This loop can be used to access the other trails in the system.

The trail is very smooth, but has a lot of grade reversals and turns to keep you on your toes. It is best ridden in the clockwise direction. This trail was build by mountain bikers and has some great flow.

In the clockwise direction there will be some steep climbs that will challenge some riders followed by some nice breaks. If you are not a very strong rider I recommend you do this loop in the clockwise direction. Just be aware that there are a lot of runners and hikers who use the steeper section of the trail hence the recommendation to go counter clockwise since you can really pickup some speed in the steep sections.

History & Background

Moscow Mountain offers a variety of recreational opportunities & challenges for bikers, hikers, runners, and horseback riders. Continual access depends on responsible & respectful use of private land. MAMBA invites you to contribute to the adventure by joining, building, & recreating.
