Trail shared by William Ganis

A thrilling trail of terrain-induced rollercoaster descents with berms, tabletops and jumps. Plus some sustained climbs.

Please do not ride when wet. Please no hiking on the downhill flow sections.


A quick left from the Hesitation Point Trail takes riders into a 350-foot descent over 1.5-miles through a fun series of flowing berms, tabletops and jumps. The trail then makes a significant climb out of a creek valley to reach the start of a 250-foot, one-mile flow segment that repeats the features from above and adds a rock-fortified section. At the bottom of these jumps, the trail crosses a creek bed and riders climb yet again, following a twisting trail that ends at the junction of Green Valley Trail and Aynes Loop.

There are optional lines to the bigger rock/gap jumps. Other rocks that appear at first to be drop-offs can be rolled down.

According to trail designer and builder Alex Stewart, "The great thing about Flow Trails is that they allow riders with a wide skill range to have a great trail experience. Intermediate riders may coast through the turns and roll over the berms, while more experienced riders will pedal and rail the turns while catching air over the berms. There will also be some optional features that allow riders to choose their own level of challenge. Because the trail can be ridden more or less aggressively, riders can ride cross country bikes. But, those wanting to catch air and ride the optional features, may want to ride a bigger travel bike. Remember that there is no shuttle at the bottom, so ride a bike that you can pedal back up to the top."

The trail was designed by Spectrum Trail Designs.

I have ridden lots of trails in Colorado, UTAH and North Carolina - this trail rivals any trail for design, fun and flow. Outstanding. May 1, 2018
I am really glad for this section and update of trail in the BC network. I do think it could be even better regarding flow. E.G., Copper Harbor MI trails. However, this is still a lot of fun with a lot of potential for future development. Jun 12, 2018
We stopped at Brown County State Park on our way to Bentonville and we loved the trails here. Hobbs Flow trail is a roller coaster for your bike. Start at the Hesitation Point parking lot. The first 1.5 mile descent is a hoot. Be aware there is one rock drop that may take you by surprise. While it can be rolled, you need to be going the right speed not to plant the front tire. Everything else has a ride-a-around. The climb is manageable and then the second downhill is even more fun than the first section. Once you reach the bottom, make a right on Shelly trail. Stay right at all intersections. Once you see the chimney and old stone foundation, you know you are on the Hesitation Point trail. Now starts a 2.1 mile climb. While this trail is more technical with roots, rocks and tight switchbacks, it is mostly ride-able and the technical sections are short and can easily be walked. Hesitation Point trail takes you back to the parking lot. We loved it so much we did the loop twice - one right after another. I would not consider this trail for beginners because if you don't control your speed it would be easy to get air and land off the trail as it is pretty narrow in spots. Also, some of the rock work is slippery and tricky. Great trail system!! Nov 2, 2018
