Overview

A well maintained trail with relatively easy climbs for the area. It actually seems as if it goes downhill both out and back. Not many technical challenges, but it flows well and is fun to ride.

Need to Know

The wood bridges can be very slippery in the winter.

Description

The trail starts at the north east corner of the Boyd Gap Overlook parking lot. (There is another more technical trail that goes south out of the parking lot.) It is well marked with signs and blazes. There is an optional spur that reconnects with the main trail. Following the signs it is an out and back ride. It goes though several different types of forest and has some nice lake overlooks.

Most of the trail is singletrack hard packed dirt. A few sections have some loose gravel, but nothing that's very difficult. There are some wooden bridges that can be very slippery.

There are some beautiful views of the Ocoee river and a some lakes. The views are better in the fall when they are not obscured by leaves.

The most fun aspect of this trail is that it seems to be downhill both out and back. Generally it's very flat with some small "bumps". Climbing the bumps doesn't take any extra energy, but then you get to coast for a bit afterwards. It seems to be an excellent trail for younger children.

Very fast and flowy. The first small inner loop is the most challenging with roots and rocks, the rest seems downhill both ways. 14mi — 1h 45m
