A little rocker and more technical than the Lawrence Creek Trail.

Description

Start at the Schoen Creek Trailhead off of Trailer Park Road and follow this trail counter-clockwise. Keep to the left when you pass the Schoen Creek Connector and turn right when you return to the short spur that leads to the parking lot.

This trail is a little less busy from walkers than the Lawrence Creek Trail and it holds up to moisture a little better.

This trail is a little bit more technical than Lawrence Creek. It has a little bit more rock, and a number of benchcuts that offer some exposure that makes riders think and slow down some. It is also a little bit more twisty with shorter climbs and descents, which tends to keep speed down.

It winds through a nice native prairie and wetland restoration area, so keep an eye peeled for wildflowers and wildlife.

Lots of roots, stone, and tree obstacles, very exciting trail. Narrow in many areas with quick switchbacks and elevation changes. Sep 1, 2015
