If your tire leaves a rut, it's too wet. Come back another day.

Description

The multi-directional, Jailhouse Trail is 95% tight and flowing singletrack. There is only about 80ft of climbing per lap, but the course is deceptively hard. Riders must be at attention 100% of the time to setup for the next turn.

The substrate is predominately clay. This makes for a fast, consistent trail during the summer months. This also means that riding it when it is too soft can cause near-permanent ruts. Riding this trail will improve the bike handling skills of any rider. If you show up to ride this one, be ready to turn.
