Stay off the golf course! Don't even think it!

Overview

A longer loop option from the eastern parking area off Main Street.

Description

Head out of the parking lot on Main St., and dive in just past the gate!

This route starts off on a quick twisty section, then cross the main access path to head down the first big drop. Ride along the creek until you get to the Rte 55 overpass and come up onto 55 to cross over the stream unless you feel daring on getting your feet soaked at the start of your ride!

Head back down onto the trail on the other side of the overpass and you are immediately in the Rollercoaster section. Take the downside at the end and come around on the berm and pass back up into the park along the edge of the golf course (be sure to duck the incoming golf balls as they whiz by!).

Follow this section until you can turn into the WeebleWobble section which comes back onto the main trail at the end then ride all along the edge of the park until you get out to The Vortex (test your skills riding it!). Now you'll be riding into the middle section of the park with lots of off-camber fast and flowy sections.

Once you finish the middle section, you'll come back the same route you came in on, except take the high line for some great ridge climbs and descents back on the Rollercoaster. You'll cross back over the 55 overpass and take a slightly different route back to the parking lot that crosses the stream.

Save some gas in the tank, because there are a couple of last challenging climbs before you take the last section back to the parking lot.

The creek crossings are not mandatory but who doesn't like a little "bike wash" mid ride?
