Great trail in the very beginning until the sections in the ridiculously dense pine forest which I really disliked, also tons of poison ivy throughout the whole park.

Really fun trail with several jumps and fun berms. Can be ridden in either direction but is much more fun going East to West.

Trail Shoal 'Nuff
Awkward trail. Somewhat overgrown at the time with one corner that is incredibly poorly designed, bordering on dangerous. It’s a fast downhill early on in the trail leading into a blind left corner without a catch berm and covered in loose gravel and rocks. Be careful on any faster sections they probably lead into a blind abrupt turn for no real reason.

First ride on the trails with my new Fantom 29 pro. Just a quick ride on Flying Squirrel to Rust Bucket back to the truck at Cahaba River Park...
