Overview

This trail course is challenging and has variety of singletrack and gravel roads.

Description

The course starts by the Appleton Road parking lot by Appleton Road overpass. It goes down green trail and crosses a creek and head up a short hill. It then heads down a great downhill. The course turns left and heads up Up Chuck. This climb hurts. After the end of Up Chuck, the cours crosses a gravel road and goes up steep incline. At the top it turn to the right. This is a mix of climbing and downhill singletrack. Be careful as there are many challenging elements to this section.

The next turn you'll have to make will be will when you come across three trail. Keep straight and left. Next, you'll come across another gravel road. Cross the road and head down Horse Jump. This section is a fun downhill but the turns come out of nowhere and will send you over your bars if your aren't careful. Continue on Horse Jump until the Horse Jump Connector which will lead to Appleton Rd Tunnel Connector, which takes you under Appleton Road.

When you get to the other side of the tunnel, keep straight onto the Little Egypt Trail. There is a climb on the section that will kill if you are not in the proper gear. After this final singletrack section, you'll ride the gravel back to the overpass over Appleton Road.
