This route offers a great variety of trails and terrain, but is generally not technical. The doubletrack trails, including the Mineola Nature Preserve Rim Trail
and Mineola Nature Preserve Gear Trail
are multiuse with equestrians. Ride alert and yield the way to horses and hikers.
Start on the Gear Trail
doubletrack, then merge onto the Wheel Trail
(doubletrack). Take a sharp U-turn onto the Mineola Nature Preserve Roller Trail (E Trail), then at the top of the Roller Trail, take another sharp U-turn onto the Mineola Nature Preserve Rim Trail
When ascending the doubletrack at the end of the Rim Trail
, turn left onto the Beginner Trail (A Trail), then another left onto an unmarked, unnamed doubletrack which loops through pleasant scenery and old growth trees before rejoining the Zeppa Well Trail
. Turn right onto this trail to return to the Mineola Nature Preserve Beginner Trail, and make a hard left turn onto the singletrack.
Follow the Beginner Trail (A Trail) around back to the trailhead.
