“Two-thirds of Enterprise South alternates direction by day. This is the counter-clockwise version.”— Kennard Yamada
Family Friendly The area has a kids MTB trail called Hercules, picnic areas, light hiking and walking trails.
If you are a beginner, you might want to ride Black Forest until you get to the paved road, travel 100 feet left or right (depending on the day) and re-enter the Black Forest Trail and return to the parking lot and if you have a little leg and lung left, repeat. Once you get comfortable with Black Forest, cross the road and head to the TNT Mountain Bike Trail.
TNT is not much harder than Black Forest but it does have some short rock gardens and some steeper climbs (though short). Half of the trail is tight singletrack that snakes through pine forests while the other half is hardwood forest over twisty dirt and rocky trail. There is a great pump area with some jump opportunities and a long speedy stretch where you can reach the high 20s MPH if you are inclined. NOTE: The TUNNEL OF BOOM is now opened (as of October 2016) so make sure to take the fork in the trail that leads to the yellow tunnel entrance rather than the bypass trail.
Log Rhythm is an upper intermediate area only because of the tight switchback that transitions to a 1.4 mile climb that has some uphill rock and root crossings. Other than that, if you stay off of the boardwalk area, there is nothing too hard about it. The actual Log Rhythm area offers downed trees as trails and an elevated boardwalk that adds challenges and technical complexity for the skilled riders. Exiting the trail appropriately for the day is really confusing. The signs are posted right where the trail forks, but when you are traveling 15 MPH; it's easy to blow right past them and exit the trail incorrectly. It's not a big deal as all trails end up on the paved road but it's something to be aware of.
The entire ESNP trail system is shaded by trees so it's a great mid-summer trail that keeps riders from baking in direct sun. In the fall, there are a lot of leaves but the high traffic of the popular trail system keeps the leaves somewhat in check.
One of my favorite things is to see families out on the Enterprise South trails. Dads, moms, and kids all in a row, biking as a group makes me smile every time. If you have a mountain bike or even a trail-worthy hybrid, Enterprise South is a great place to get fit and have fun.
