“A small, fun loop of trails that each have their own distinct character.”
— Leslie Kehmeier
Raceway is a small trail system of about 5 miles which, when ridden in a figure eight, easily yields 10 miles (both ways) of fun trail without feeling that you are riding the same trail. The route described is a shorter ride, covering most of the loops in a counter-clockwise direction.
Start on Little Monza
, heading north and climbing gradually on contouring trail that meanders through big forest. Just after the high point, the trail starts to descend, turning back to the south.
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
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.
