“This ride heads out on mostly flat doubletrack horse trails inside the RTJ golf course.”— Charlie Blume
Family Friendly Flat, mostly doubletrack.
After you cross the golf course maintenance path and enter the wooded area, you'll notice trail signs to help navigate the trails but with the number of trails/loops in this area it is easy to get turned around. There are now maps at the Hays Nature Preserve parking lot information sign or you can use the MTB Project mobile app to help find your way.
At the fork, go left on the Skip Rock Wilderness Trail to the 100-Acre Woods Trail around the lake to Bobcat Thicket and Deer Run back to the Skip Rock Wilderness fork. From here, head back to the parking area the same way you came along White Tail Haven, Duck Weed Basin, and the Flint River Greenway.
