A fairly flat loop with larger progressive features than Sandy Wash. Optional Jaxon's Loop includes drops and doubles.

Overview

Family Friendly: There may be a couple spots where the kids would have to hike-a-bike, but that's a good teaching opportunity for parents. Smile.

Description

Part of the OxBow Trail System, the trail winds back and forth on the south bank of the Salt Creek to complete an almost one-mile loop. Parking is available at a lot on the corner of 13th and Silver Street.

At the start of the singletrack is a historic marker in memoriam for a pioneer child who lost his life. Past the marker, the trail is a bit more open than the nearby Sandy Wash trail on the other side of Salt Creek. Sandy Flow opened in early 2017 and provides a fun route with opportunities for higher speeds, the young nature of the trail will require more wheeled-traffic to bed-in properly.

There are around 30 technical trail features on Sandy Flow including larger berms, progressive jumps, and skinnies. Nearly every feature has a ride-around. Overall, the trail is a bit more difficult than Sandy Wash, but it's still approachable for newer riders. The western end of the loop connects to Jaxon's Loop, which adds about 1/3 of a mile of intermediate/advanced terrain and features (these features don't have ride-arounds).

This is one of the best mountain bike only trails in NE. Someone has done a TON of work on the Sandy Flow/Wash trails. A Cali style trail here. 5.3mi — 1h 00m
