Description

This trail travels along the west side of Duck River Reservoir, offering nice flow, excellent scenery, occasional climbs and descents, and a few technical features.

The west side of the Duck River Recreation Area is, in some respects, more challenging than the east side. While it serves up plenty of the same sort of flow, it mixes in more technical features and greater elevation changes. Although this means there are more climbs, it also means there are more descents!

Some climbs are made more interesting by the presence of rock gardens and rock armoring. There is even a nice creek crossing featuring some rock armoring you don't want to miss! The trail offers nice views of the reservoir throughout.

This trail segment begins at the trailhead located at the dead end of CR-1651 on the west side of the Duck River Reservoir. The segment ends at CR-1669 near the bridge crossing the Duck River. Most often it is ridden as an out-and-back, but it's possible to follow the North Trail to the East Side Trail for a twenty-mile ride.
