“A great ride on carving singletrack through scenic woodlands with awesome views of Lake Shelbyville!”— Mark Shanks

Family Friendly The trails in the General Dacey Trail system are smooth, rolling, and have great views and multiple options for loops.
Start out on the Ag Pass trail which features nice, rolling hills with scenic views of the forest and creek. Ag Pass is a great out and back on its own with gentle, rolling hills and a well-maintained surface.
From Ag Pass, continue onto the Boulder Loop. The Boulder Loop is a fast, carving singletrack loop with a great scenic overlook of Lake Shelbyville. Starting off of Ag Pass, the start of the loop winds along the shore of Ninth Street Cove with great views of Lake Shelbyville. The trail has some gradual ups and downs but nothing too challenging.
You then connect to Split Rock Loop trail on the north side. The Split Rock Loop starts and ends on the northwest corner of Boulder Loop and makes for a scenic tour of the old growth forest that grows along the shores of Lake Shelbyville. There is one creek crossing and a single steep hill, but otherwise it is mostly upland forest riding, with a nice rest stop view of Club Cove about halfway through the loop.
Spilt Rock Loop connects back to Boulder Loop and then Ag Pass so you can loop back to your starting point to finish out your ride.
