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

Description

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.

Please note that this is a one way trail starting at Hesitation Point. We are advising hikers to avoid the Down Hill Flow sections, but they are welcome to use the section from the Hobbs Valley to Green Valley / Aynes Intersection. Sep 26, 2017

Hobbs Hollow is a destination trail--a great reason to come to Brown County State Park--or to visit again. I have a feeling it will soon be the state's #1 trail. Sep 26, 2017
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
