      XC course that is one of the better courses in the Memphis area. Named for the smell that sometimes emanates from the ground when it is wet. The course is as hard as you want to make it, no hard climbs, most obstacles can be avoided if needed, but to ride it fast you need some technical skill. There are several bridges, two mandatory creek crossings (usually pretty dry but the first one is a bit of a drop) depending on if you take the entire trail or not, one reasonably technical drop (on the Blue trail).

      Composed of several loops that split off of a main loop. Starting at the parking lot, enter the trail from the West side of the parking lot. Travel down the trail and take your first left, this starts the Blue trail. The Blue trail has a pretty technical drop about half-way through. The blue trail meets back with the main trail, the Yellow trail, almost back where it deviated. Take the yellow trail North, it will take you to a creek crossing, stay left and climb a small hill where you will then see a raised platform leading to a jump. Most people do not take the jump but follow the trail down to a bridge crossing. There you have no option but to continue taking the Yellow trail around where you will eventually come to an intersection where you can stay left and take the White Trail. The White trail takes you to the Outhouse trail, one of the fastest sections of the entire system of trails, and it also meets up with the Red/Wine-o trail. The Wine-o trail splits off from the White, though it is now hard to see exactly where the intersection is, and takes you through some quick and slightly technical sections before a fast XC downhill that comes to a somewhat abrupt turn before going across a bridge and back up a small hill. It then hits a fast XC downhill that ends with a turn, on a bridge, before a small climb again. The Wine-o then continues around to meet back up with the White trail. This trail will eventually take you past the BMX jump course, back to an access road, and then back out to the parking lot after one other creek crossing.
