An exciting trail that has it all.

Paul Stahlschmidt

Overview

Description

Warrior Creek is among the most progressively-built trails at Kerr Scott. Being the third trail system to be completed at Kerr Scott (after Dark Mountain and OVT), it represents the evolution of over ten years of purpose-built MTB trailbuilding. "The OVT on steroids," BMCC Trail Boss, Jim Horton, has said of Warrior Creek.

Warrior Creek's length is a big difference from other trails here. Combined with a section of the OVT at Warrior, it is usually completed with a 13-mile commitment.

Along the way there are rock gardens, bridges, tons of in-sloped turns, and great lake views. Often it's more than JUST BERMS; Warrior creek also contains several "super-stacks" of berms and banked turns that are likely to provide the most memorable part of your ride.

For those seeking even more mileage, Warrior Creek can be combined with other out and back opportunities on the OVT at Warrior Creek or the Black-Diamond rated Headwaters Loop. Be sure to see the the Kerr Scott - IMBA Epic Featured Ride for more details on Warrior Creek and connecting to it from other trails.

Trail was in great condition despite recent rains. I rode OVT the day before, and the two days of riding showed me how out of shape I am! 13mi

Warrior is a great trail and unique with its flowy flow. Some riders discount it for that reason but it is a joy to feel you are on a roller coaster in the woods. Jun 15, 2017


What mountain range is this #1 rated mountain bike trail in ? asking for a friend. Jun 22, 2017


Jefe tell your friend that this trail sits in-between two ranges, the Brushy Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Jun 22, 2017
