Features Drops/Jumps

Trails can easily be damaged when muddy, especially during the winter. Check the JORBA Site for current trail status, here.

Overview

This ride goes out on the Blue Trail to the Red Trail to the Orange Trail, then back on Red Trail to the Route 27 parking lot. It's mostly an out and back, but once on the Red Trail for the second time, take the left fork to stay on Red rather than going on Blue. Then make a left onto the White Trail. You wind up finishing for a short stretch on the road, but it's really the best route through Six Mile Run Park.

Need to Know

There is one road crossing. Be careful as the traffic moves fast on that road.

History & Background

Jason Fenton of Halter's and local rider Jason "Wobbegong" Pace co-lead the Six Mile Run chapter and keep the trails clean, clear, and super fun. In 2007, JORBA adopted the group as an official JORBA chapter ,and the park is maintained regularly by a local volunteer trail crew.

All of the trails at Six Mile Run are open to multi-use. This is something we are very proud of. In the past, the park had trails that did not allow cycling. Through our efforts, working as a team with the park staff, we were able to change the status of all trails to multi-use. Hikers, bikers, and equestrians riders are all equally welcome.

Trails are currently frozen over and there are significant tire treads in the frozen mud at the west end of the blue trail.

Mostly decent conditions considering all the recent rain. The low lying areas were muddy, but this is MTB!! (Most could be avoided if so inclined.) — 2h 30m
