“A small, fun loop of trails that each have their own distinct character.”— Leslie Kehmeier
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
Family Friendly There are lots of trails to explore and improve your skills.
Stay right on Corkscrew and dive into the trees. The route becomes much more technical as it goes through a series of tight turns and a narrow corridor down to the creek.
Cross the bridge and bear right to start a climb on Meadowdale. It's fairly short, but pretty steep. At the top, the route levels out and rolls into an open area, crossing an old piece of pavement. Continue straight onto Serpentine Trail.
The route jumps back into the woods and comes to an optional line, go right for the easier trail. Stay left for a short series of g-outs. After the options come back together, the trail breaks out again into the open. From here, the trail winds through a big field of tall grasses and shrubs before starting a winding descent back to Meadowdale.
After crossing the creek, another fun descent awaits. You'll be back in the big forest and flowing over plenty of rollers and berms on the way back to the Silo Hill Trail connector.
Stay left to do the last big climb of the ride. At the top, peel off to ride Little Monza in reverse back to the Racewood Woods trailhead and the beginning of the ride.
