This featured ride utilizes the outermost trail of this trail system to form a big loop that delivers fast, flowing singletrack and some sections of tech where you'll have to pick a clean line.
Many riders prefer riding this loop in the counter-clockwise direction (as mapped), which immediately starts you out on a descent with some steep ups and downs, before heading across a field, then crossing the road toward the lake.
, riders will work into the woods for 3 J's
. After a short distance, the singletrack splits. Go left for a more gradual descent or go right down a steep, manageable drop. At the bottom of the hill, you'll turn left back towards the dam on Bono Push
for a straightforward climb up to the intersection with High Flow Trail
and Low Flow Trail
Keep right on High Flow Trail
for a gradual climb through the trees and beneath power lines to enjoy the fast flowing turns at the southern end. At the bottom, you could head up Low Flow Trail
if you wanted to add some mileage. Otherwise, continue through the easy Southforks
to reach V-Twins
On the west part of this trail, you can really build some speed as you work back and forth through the corners. There are a few small downed trees in the trail before riders reach "The Elevator," an uprooted tree stump covered in dirt that is a fun up and down (no technical skills required to ride over this).
As you make it back to the east side of the lake, you'll come to the Boulders of Bono
, which offer a technical rock garden where you'll want to focus on choosing a good line for your tires between all of the many rocks.
After this rocky traverse, U2x3
leads around the edge of the hill and down through the grassy lake bottom. At the next intersection, riders can choose from Upper Dino
and Lower Dino
for some easygoing singletrack that makes a nice cool-down back to the start.
Ride the trail clockwise for a different challenge with a big climb at the end. There are also motocross trails at this facility and they do occasionally cross the MTB trails.
