A nice park in the city with riders choosing singletrack or doubletrack, both with big climbs!

BJ Null

Overview

One of the best true mountain bike trails in Mississippi. Lots of climbs with a long, cross county feel. You cover a lot of distance with very few spaghetti loops. The last two miles are a must-do with the best downhill section in Mississippi.
Family Friendly: City park with two lakes, paved pathways for running and biking with playground. Several bathrooms, but no showers. Unfortunately, no camping.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

To access this loop, start from the rear parking lot at the upper lake. Leave the parking lot and head for the obvious gravel road going uphill with a gate. Fifty feet after starting the gravel road, the singletrack will start on your left (optional downhill start 200 yards further uphill on gravel road).

The trail can be hard to follow in places, but follow the blue blazes on the trees for the singletrack or use the MTB Project mobile app to keep on track. Stay off the green trails (horses) and expect lots of climbing. There are lots of bail-out points as the singletrack stays close to the gravel road.

The singletrack has it all: steep climbs and downhills, tight turns, few sandy spots, some small rock gardens and rocks, lakes, wildlife and a couple of creek crossings.

After completing the ~12-mile loop, the trail will dump back out on the gravel road, go right to head back to the parking lot. If you want to ride gravel, there is an excellent four-mile perimeter gravel road with several big hills.

Steep hills with some fun downhill sections. The best hills and terrain in Mississippi, and worth a go if you are in the area. The trail has recently been marked with blue arrows and has been cleaned up. The gravel road around the lake is an excellent way to cool down or gets some mileage in after you do the singletrack.
