Overview

Trail closes for 24 hours after rain.

Description

Parking is in the Marion Diehl Park lot across Tyvola Rd. The trail starts in a cul-de-sac off of Farmbrook Dr.

The trail is now well marked and the entrance has a few trail options, but keep right at the entrance and at the first fork in the trail and you'll be headed in the right direction. One of the most unique trails you'll ever ride, BYT has a little of everything: tons of jumps, ledges, rock drops, insane skinnies, cannons, a concrete halfpipe, a few tough climbs to challenge your skills, and the infamous "Poo Tracks" a section that will test your balance and your ability to hold your breath...

Always a fun ride. It was pretty dry after two days since it rained. Just a couple spots that were a little muddy. 6mi
