Beebe is unlike many other trail systems in the area as it includes many small mountains with lots of options for ups and down instead of one long climb up and one long down hill. Because of the nature of the terrain, and the riding style of the trail builders Beebe is blessed with lots of options for incredible downhill runs. This route is a tour of many of the DH runs, starting with the longest climb first. The route includes some gravel / double track options to get you to the down hills faster. If you’d like to take more single track / less gravel - you can add in Ninja Test, Pinnacle Point + Horse Trail. If you still have legs in you - and want more Down Hill runs - you can add in Dirt Fish, Fire Tower Descent, Tango (DH) and Catch 22 (West to East)

 Has such potential! Old school NE Singletrack for sure. No berms, jumps, features to speak of. Thing is, it seems nobody is taking care of the drainage issues. Long sections of trail have become the low point so the mountain uses it for a drainage culvert. Move the trail 10-20 feet to either side and it's all fixed. Then there are many places where the drainage used to go across the trail and continue down. But due to debris, the trail becomes the wide path of least resistance. One section has a lot of bridges, clearly someone put a lot of effort into it some years ago. Each bridge is located at a drainage crossing...or at least what used to be. Since nobody has maintained it, debris has clogged under the bridges and the water just flows and pools around them. It's like an archipelago of bridges. Sad, seeing as how a lot of love was put into building this area. And no, this is nothing close to a Tour de "Downhill". Just look at the profile. It's a great XC course. Except for the initial dirt road climb, all other climbs are on single track. Again, great old school NE style riding, but total false advertising. Fix the drainage and the name, and this is a fantastic ride.

 Hi Chuck - We've just had 3 weeks of very heavy rains which have caused a lot of trail damage. The trails are normally very well maintained - and as soon as things dry out the trail crews will be back out. (with the exception of the Harvey Mtn decent which is maintained by hikers) If you try this route again - keep in mind - this route is designed to get you to the top of the hills as quick as possible - so if includes 1.5 miles of road. If you'd like to skip the road - take Pinnacle trail (or try one of the other routes).

 Yes, 8” plus rain for the month will do a job. Beebee Hill is always on my A list. Thanks Zach.

 VERY well maintained system by a fantastic core of volunteers. Ride it 5 days after 5in of rain in 12 hours and you may find it disheveled.

 Absolutely love this place. Where else can you find steep downhilly trails, sendy trails you can launch it, and just plain ole fun trails to ride fast on? The dude below who chose to lambast thwas trails has no clue what he’s talking about. Too bad he’s pi$$ed of the locals....they are the best resource to find the best trails.
