Overview

This ride features approximately four miles of flowing singletrack with obstacles and switchbacks through the woods. Maintained and improved by a group of local bikers, the trail offers obstacles, both man-made and natural. Roadway crossings are accomplished by the singletracks that parallel the creek and go under the bridge, eliminating hillbilly traffic on Woods Lane. All obstacles have alternate go-arounds for those just wanting to ride through the woods.

Need to Know

Roadway crossings follow the creek and go under the roadway via singletrack.

Description

This route is divided up into four trails, and signs designate Trail 2, Trail 3, Trail 4, and Trail 5. Trail 1 is a walking trail and out of play and a mile away from these anyhow. Along the way, expect quick switchbacks and some small hills. All the technical obstacles have ride-arounds.

Pretty great little intermediate trails; not muddy or torn up. They do a great job with keeping the trails clearer. Trail 3 was my favorite

Trails were real muddy, rode about 50 feet into the woods before going back to not damage the trails. Would wait about a week for them to dry — 3h 30m
