The approximately 2 mile long Bell Branch Trail flows well on a mountain bike while including enough twisty sections to help you remember that turning can be fun too. The tread is generally smooth and relatively free of roots and rocks. The terrain is rolling with enough elevation change to get the heart rate going if you try to but also gradual enough to accommodate riders who prefer a more casual pace. Sight lines are very good, allowing a clear view of the trail ahead and affording glimpses of wildlife and of the many historic beech trees located throughout the area. It is a particularly good trail for beginners, kids and people who are returning to MTB after some time away from it.

       Fun, short single track that is accessible to all skill levels. It’s a fresh trail so a bit soft, but is an excellent addition to trails in this area!

       Perfect ride for me, getting back into mountain biking and recovering from knee surgery. Not boring, but not overly difficult either. Great job on the new trail
