Description

You Betcha was purposely built to consider the width, geometry, and unique handling characteristics of adaptive MTB equipment. It is the sister trail of Watch Your Six offering a loop around the top of Huston Wyeth Park. It is a multi-use trail so be aware of the possibility of encountering pedestrians.

The trail begins where the Crushed Limestone Trail meets the parking lot. It immediately opens with a pair of switchbacks and gradually descends past a picnic area before a very slight uphill. As the trail passes through a brief open area, one will come upon stone steps dating to the 1930's in a gentle turn. One can roll them or drop them with speed. Keeping to the outside of the steps will allow beginner riders a less difficult option and a better climbing option for adaptive riders traveling the trail in reverse.

After the steps, one will cross the foundation of a long gone park structure. Keeping to the middle of the foundation is the main route. However, there is an optional drop off the corner of the foundation. It is a beginner level drop but it's highly recommended that riders of every skill level inspect the feature before attempting it. The trail merges together before turning left and continuing downhill where it saunters through the trees before intersecting with the Crushed Limestone Trail and Watch Your Six.

One can continue on Watch Your Six to complete the loop around Huston Wyeth Park or travel north on the Crushed Limestone Trail to the bike/pedestrian bridge that connects to River Bluffs Trails Park.

One can continues on You Betcha via a tight turn to the right just before the Crushed Limestone Trail. There is a long sweeping left turn before the trail continues downhill. A right turn leads to a brief straight before a banked switchback to the left. The trail squeezes between the hillside and a fence as it continues its descent. One soon reaches rocks for the pedestrian bridge abutment that requires some thought. Adaptive riders will need some assistance at these rocks. Follow the edge of the rocks as the trail wraps around the hillside.

The trail goes south from here as it gently moves through the trees at the base of the bluff. Soon, it turns out of the trees where users will cross MacArthur Drive to the entrance of the main cross country parking lot.
