Description

Beginning at the intersection with Rocky Ridge Loop, Breeden Ridge is one of O'Bannon Woods State Park's newest trails. It joins with the new Potato Run Trail near the Nature Center.

Breeden Ridge begins with a classic hand-built segment leading into a challenging rock garden with a number of optional lines. Past the rock gardens, the new machine built trail begins, with a rolling climb to the top of Breeden Ridge. A stair-step segment through the rocks leads toward the top of the ridge.

Once at the top of the ridge, the trail twists, and winds, with a number of berms and rollers, and descends through a challenging, rocky staircase toward more berms, rollers, and rock features. A log jump will challenge many riders, as the trail climbs toward a small woodland pond--the highest point on the trail. From the pond, a series of twisting turns leads into a rock jump, more rollers and then a tabletop feature, before reaching a horse trail crossing.

Past the ridge line horse crossing, the trail begins to descend toward Potato Run, with a series of table tops, more rolling berms and rock features, as it drops down into the valley. Watch for a large fallen tree that has been used to create a natural log skinny.

Use caution while approaching the horse trails, and yield to horseback riders, if present.

A series of snake-like berm turns lead into a series of tabletops before the creek crossing. With a twisting climb up the other side of the creek, the trail begins to level out, with another series of rollers and tabletops, before joining the Potato Run Trail.

A left at the trail junction will return the rider up Potato Run toward the campground while a right turn will allow the rider to continue toward the bottom of the Group Camp Trail.
