Access Info

This trail system rides as a single loop currently marked with four different colored flags. When riding in the primary direction of travel, the flags will always appear on the right side of the trail.

To access the trail, take the large, obvious foot path into the woods directly behind the playground. After 0.25 miles, you'll begin to see red flag markers on the right side of the trail. Follow these which will take your to the right at the first fork encountered.

After approximately 200 ft, the trail cuts sharply into the woods and from there is easy to follow. The flow of the trail will take you from red to orange to yellow to blue markers. The end of the blue flags finishes right at the beginning of the red flags where you started.

All dry. Some banked corners maybe a little too dry to be aggressive on.

 It's 10min from my house so I'm biased, but it's a great XC trail with some cool features and good flow. Perfect for an after work rip, or a multiple lap weekend ride. Blue rating is about right. It's harder than a path in the woods, but not super techy.
