Family Friendly: Multi-purpose, not overly hard.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The Park property is longer than it is wide. Our loop starts right at the first tee box for the Frisbee golf course. Start by parking in the lot near the barn and ride down to a wooden bridge crossing a stream. Once over the stream, go to the left.

At the picnic table, you'll see a blue arrow in a tree. This is the start of the singletrack. The trail runs back and forth up the grade of the hill. At the top, you'll find another picnic table. This is a good spot to regroup and catch a breather. The climb needs a little more work, its not easy in some spots.

From the picnic table, go about 15 yards straight then look for the trail to your right. More signs are coming in the future. Follow the blue marks through to the next clearing. Here, you'll ride straight out and be looking to your left for re-entry to the woods.

The trail and transitions from here are pretty easy to follow. We have some really fun sections with more trail to come. For now, once you reach the end of the completed trail, take the perimeter fire road up the hill to your right and there are multiple routes to get back down to the bottom. We are working to solidify the descent and get it marked. Any questions can be directed to THUMB MTB Club. Find us on Facebook.

Getting forecast...

Excellent loop to hit up if you're in the Martinsburg area or just passing by (it's only 3 miles from I-81). To begin the loop there is a bit of a climb (not too bad though and it cuts up the hill nicely), but once you're on top of the hill it's quite nice with cut and flow. Descending back down the hill on either side is a ton of fun with the southern side being slightly more technical and rocky. Oct 31, 2016

I've just started riding here as it's the closest local spot for quick morning/afternoon rides. Trails are good but starting to get a bit overgrown. Definitely need a trail maintenance day. One thing to note: lots of poison ivy on the trees, so if you stop to rest and grab a tree... take note of where you put your hands. Jun 29, 2017
