Trail shared by Mike Enright

All singletrack. Lots of roots and washout but overall not very technical.

Overview

All in all, this ride uses a pretty good singletrack trail. It's short enough to get a lap or two in after work. There is lots of parking with easy access to the trailhead. Some of the boardwalks are a bit dilapidated, so ride quickly when you approach them.

Need to Know

These trails are used by cyclists and pedestrians alike. Use caution as the trail is narrow in places. A couple of the bridges/boardwalks were in poor shape. Crossing on a bike was a little sketchy.

Description

This ride heads counterclockwise, though the trails can be ridden in any direction. From the entrance, head north/northeast on South Trail toward a short southeast spur on the Sewer Line Corridor, before continuing northeast on the Southeast Trail. The trail tread on the singletrack Southeast Trail is bumpier than the wider, smoother Sewer Line Corridor.

After a brief climb, the Southeast Trail bends to the north and west along the boundary and Tumbling Creek Rd. Continue on the North Trail as it winds and undulates through the Tumbling Creek Woods. Cross Balus Creek and take the Sewer Line Corridor to the west and south, bending back toward the entrance and parking area.
