Alum Creek Phase 2 (P2) has quickly become the most heavily ridden trail in Central Ohio. Phase 2 was originally designed for more advanced riders and features some relatively narrow bridges ("skinnies"). As a newer trail than P1, it tends to flow a little better & not have quite as many exposed roots. Some technical sections are optional, but newer riders should be prepared for challenges including numerous bridges and logovers.

P2 is home to a few longer bridges, a banked wall turn & a signature section of elevated trail. At ~5.5 miles, it's ridden as one continuous loop and is a shared trail with the occasional hiker or trail runner.
