Trail shared by Greg Rollins

Great old school, primitive trail - some of the oldest in Richmond.

Description

A narrow, twisty singletrack located within a 100-acre park. Short, steep climbs and fast descents with a few flat or straight spots. At the very bottom is a swampy area. Riders should stick to the established trails and be aware of the No Trespassing signs. Some parts of the wooded area are private property.

This is a moderately difficult, intermediate trail system, with fast flowing singletrack. There are some rocky sections, log piles, roots, and some bermed turns. Perhaps the highlight of this hidden gem is the THE BUZZ which is a dried out creekbed that has been turned into a fast flowing section with plenty of bermed turns, rollers, and banked sections. You can drop into and out of the creek bed as if it were a half-pipe.

Overall, this trail system is rather secluded and quiet. Its not uncommon to be the only rider on the trails in an entire day. Stick to the outside loop unless you know the park well. It is easy to get lost if you dont know your way around.

Great park to ride after heavy rain or freeze thaw. Still remember don't ride if muddy.
