Overview

100% singletrack - a mixture of mowed grass and dirt trails. Drains well. The entire trail is within 100 yards of the Jamestown Reservoir.

Need to Know

Parking available at Jamestown Dam Swimming Beach. Bathrooms. Also another trail known as Splitrock close by and is very fun.

Description

The trail starts at the entrance to the entrance to the Jamestown Reservoir Swimming Beach - look for a sign at the trailhead.

This is a very fun trail that is used heavily by locals. It has nice punchy climbs and fun flowing downhills. There are also some nice bridges over wet areas. Total ride time can range from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on your pace.

Keep your eye out for hikers, since this is a multi-use trail.

Maintained weekly on average. Stay on the trail, there are rocks in the tall grass next to the trail in many areas!

Hot & muggy day, but cooled off by jumping into the reservoir. Enjoyed hanging out at a secluded beach near the end of the trail. 7mi — 3h 13m
