Need to Know

Scout it Up was built with the assistance of the local Boy Scouts as a service component of one of their camp outs. We can't thank these young men enough for their help in building this trail!

Cacapon only closes trails twice per year for a controlled hunt: November 5-7 & November 12-14. Please do not use the trails during these times.

Description

This is a less steep, less rocky way to get uphill and form a loop back to the Batt Picnic Area Hub, rather than using Start Me Up to lower Get Down .

The trail branches off of Start Me Up before it crosses the paved road and then begins a more gentle climb. It is still called mountain biking, so there is uphill, about 111 feet of it over the 0.8 mile trail. Also, it is Cacapon, so there are still some rocks, but it is not extremely technical.

To make a fun loop, ride this uphill to where it dead-ends into Get Down. Hang a right and follow Get Down until it dead-ends into Giddy-Up Trail. Hang another right and continue back to the Batt Picnic Area Mountain Biking Hub for a fun 1.5-mile loop that's great for beginners who want a little more challenge, or for anyone else who just wants a fun warm up or add-on loop to a bigger ride.
