Middle Mountain Trail is where you’ll reach the high point of Douthat State Park. It's also the pinnacle of the Douthat State Park - IMBA Epic.

The trail transcends from the monotonous hardwood forest of Stony Run into into moss and lichen covered rocks and trees, a surreal landscape.

The majority of Middle Mountain is a fast cruise across a ridge through the trees. You might feel like you’re riding through a scene from Lord of the Rings.

The trail connects with Salt Stump on the far north end.
