Trail shared by Steve Dymond

The trail has technical terrain throughout its duration as well as some flat road miles; it's a workout.

Features -none-

Family Friendly Loop 5 is great for the kids.

Look for the sign at the trailhead indicating "Open or Closed," we don't ride wet trails.

Overview

This ride has climbs, drops, technical features, some flat land you can get some speed on or recover at a slower pace to be ready for the next technical section. There are six loops that are daisy-chained together with marked bailouts at the end of each loop, in case you can't go the entire way.

It's a challenging loop that will work you out. There wooded areas, plenty of rock gardens, berms, jumps, a teeter-totter, skinny, and several drops and climbs.

Description

Knob Hills starts out through some wooded areas with drops and climbs, then it opens up to some flat, fast trail sections. It turns towards Denton Creek and follows the creek for about a mile and a half with some more rolling flatland that goes up a rock garden and then back into the woods for some more tight trees, rock gardens, and short, stout climbs.

It goes back to some area and then Loop 6 that has climbs, rocks, trees, drops, and the "Gauntlet" that is above the creek again. Half-way through Loop 6, you are at the halfway point to head back to the trailhead.

The ride back to the trailhead is more of the same just more inland. You finish up with the "Goat Killer" climb that only about 5% make it up without walking. It's a great trail that will have you coming again and again to conquer it.
