This is, as the name suggests, the main mountain bike trail at Rocky Point. All optional trails are off of this loop. It is a hard singletrack tread, for the most part. There are a few places where you will encounter some sand (in the areas marked Desert, and Sandbox), and there are some small moguls and easy hills. Watch for wildlife and users on other trails (pedestrians, dogwalkers, horses, users on the fire roads). Check yourself for ticks after riding (Lone Star ticks are most common). Most riders park at the main lot on Rocky Point Road. Get there early, as this is a popular trail with limited parking. Bring lots of water and snacks.

Access Info

Main parking lot on Rocky Point Rd. 1/4 mile north of Whiskey Rd. Smaller parking lots on Route 25A Bypass. The first is just east of the 25A split and the other is approximately 1000 feet east of the Broadway and Route 25A intersection.
