Great downhill section that has really been improved over the last few years. Fast and more flowy than other trails in the system.

One of my favorite trails. Very rooty and challenging in spots with some truly fun sections sprinkled in. Makes a great pairing with Loop One.

A really fun intro to the Lussi Trails. Drop in from the driving range parking lot off Rt 86. There’s some double track that leaves the bottom of the lot. Follow that for a very short bit and you’ll see the singletrack go into the woods on the right.

There are 3 skinnies to try on this trail. The first two are short and straight and the third is very long and multi-segmented and lots of fun.

The trail itself is rooty but not too technical and is a good introduction into the type of trails you’ll find in the rest of the system.

Great trail with beautiful berms and a pretty boss drop to start it off.

Somewhat fun to ride. Had a couple berms, one tiny drop (one of only two features I encountered after riding most of this trail system) and a steep hill at the end. Overall still not worth it. Can’t believe people actually take time and energy to ride in this place.

Boring. No berms, jumps, or fun terrain. Just bumpy roots and rocks making it challenging and no fun whatsoever.

Absolutely the only trail worth riding in this network. There’s one good jump over the creek but the rest is just roots, rocks, and in some places too rough to ride. I would never go back here. Riding here is all work and no fun.
