Description

From the parking lot at W Pump Station Rd and N Silent Grove Rd, head west under the bridge on the Access Trail that parallels Spring Creek. Once you cross the bridge over the creek, take a left. This takes you to the climb with four switchback turns.

Once you are at the top of the hill, you'll cross a dirt road. There is an "Advanced Downhill" trail clearly marked with a sign if you go to the right. Go to the left and you'll wind through the trees.

At the final fork in the trail, take a right to continue down to the bottom through some nice, high-speed turns. Once it flattens out, you'll be back to the bridge over the creek. Take a left to head back to the parking lot.

There are no big obstacles to contend with, but the climb at the beginning of the trail can be difficult due to the rocky conditions.

There are three trail heads at Thunder Chicken. 2 Intermediate/Difficult and 1 expert run. The trails run into a lot of spider webs, so get ready to have a face full of spiders. Trail Maintenance team said that the webs are constant and even after being knocked down the webs will be back by the end of the day. Other than that, the trails are awesome! Could spend some serious time looping this trail. Sep 7, 2018
