“A cross country trail primarily downhill that starts with a great descent. My favorite Acton Trail!”
— rich webb
No closures, but NO FUN if it's wet!
Take Highway 3 North past the town of Acton. Take a right onto Oswald Road, which is located between mile marker 18 and 19. Continue 6.5 miles until Heag Road
and take a right. About 2.5 miles farther is the parking lot and the entrance to the Acton Recreation Area.
The entire area is being developed through a partnership between the BLM and the local IMBA club, Pedal United. Trails continue to develop with the goal of turning the Acton Recreation Area into a mountain bike destination.
Tumbleweed branches off before you reach the parking area if climbing up Heag Road
, which means it begins south, or below the parking area. Tumbleweed is an intermediate cross country trail that begins with a steep descent. There is only one spot that you might consider a bike portage, but even that spot can be ridden.
After finishing this fantastic trail, start pedaling back up Heag Road
and hit another of the great singletrack trails here!
