Description

Located off the Bike and Hike trail for easy access, this trail is the first phase of the new East Rim Trail System.

The trail changes direction daily, so observe the signs posted at the trailhead. Although this trail is a little short, it is still a lot of fun.

If you're looking for a longer ride, you can connect to the Bedford Singletrack using the Bike and Hike Trail.

Rode the East Rim 1, 2, and 3 trails on the 1997 Specialized Hardrock. No suspension on fork or rear, it was bumpy, but a lot of fun. Got some air! 7mi — 1h 30m

Phase 2 should open in Fall of 2017. Expect the trail to be well marked when it is open. Jun 13, 2017
I Love both phase 1/2.The best flow trails in Ohio for sure. Beginners will have fun because most everything is smooth, barring a couple of rock spots. Advanced riders will love the speed and flow even more. Banked turns have well thought out apexes, table top jumps are also well placed to allow you to carry speed through them. The trail holds up very well to rain with rock "armor" placed. Sep 30, 2017
Phase two is open! Come Ride! May 6, 2018
