Description

This trail is very short, one of the few dirt multi-use trails on the west side of the paved Banks-Vernonia State Trail. It's good as a quick loop by itself at the end of the day, or as a warm up or cool down for the mountain bike specific trails just east of the Banks-Vernonia State Trail.

The easiest place to start is the Buxton Trailhead, about two miles south on the Banks-Vernonia State Trail. Ride up the paved path and you'll eventually come to a small clearing with a sign pointing right for South Caddywhomper Way (where the trail on this map begins). Do not go this way (South Caddywhomper Way is a terribly steep doubletrack trail anyways). Instead, turn left and proceed straight at a four-way intersection and you'll start downhill. It's a gradual downhill but be careful of choppy terrain due to horses.

Eventually the trail levels out and loosely follows Brooks Creek before a more circuitous climb back up to the paved trail. These switchbacks can be difficult, as they are very steep, have tight turns, the trail conditions can be poor. After these switchbacks, the trail connects back up with the Banks-Vernonia State Trail and you can either head off towards the awesome mountain bike specific trails on the east side of the pavement or coast all the way downhill to your car at Buxton and be back at home in time for dinner.
