“There are many ways to enjoy Jakes Rocks, but this ride hits just about every trail in phase 1!”— Frank Maguire
Family Friendly Although there are some tougher sections, if your kid is up for an adventure and has some stamina, this is very doable.
At the next trail intersection, stay right on H Trail and get ready for the longest sustained downhill in this phase, dropping for over a mile and a half. There are multiple optional lines that include hips, rock gardens, and drops. There are also several wooden puncheons and cool armored sections to deal with wet areas.
H Trail eventually levels out, and after crossing several drainage areas, the trail starts to climb, crossing FR 492. After a short climb, take a right on C Trail and descend again for a short bit, passing through some large boulders. After crossing a grassy forest road, start heading out to the point. At the next intersection, stay right to start down a short section of B Trail before turning left on J Trail.
J Trail is the only trail (so far) that is built by hand by local volunteers, and the difference is readily apparent. The surface is looser and then proceeds through some very tight rock chasms that no machine could fit through. There are several cool rock features in this section that make for cool photos, if you want to document your ride!
At the end of J Trail, turn left again back on to B Trail for a short, fast downhill, including a natural wall ride. The trail flows seamlessly into A Trail and begins climbing back toward the trailhead. There are multiple, very cool wooden puncheons as well as rock features that flow really nicely in the other direction if you have some energy left at the end of this loop.
Once you get to the top of the plateau, take a left on E Trail to a short connection to G Trail. G Trail starts out climbing slightly on yet another trail that is fun in both directions. After a short distance, the trail starts going up Coal Knob, with some very cool rock features to challenge you.
Once on top, you cross a broad piece of exposed sandstone, reminiscent of Dupont or even Moab slick rock. On the far side of the knob, the trail drops into some of the best flow in this phase. At the next intersection, turn right on F Trail to continue flowing back to the parking lot.
