A mix of every kind of trail you can think of, rolled into one great ride.

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 3 Rating: Major obstacles exist. You will not be able to ride this solo. Support rider needed.

This is an adventure on an adaptive mountain bike. We took 2 bombers and did a lot of spotting for them on off cambered spots, rock crawls etc. Doable for a lower level spinal cord injury if you have good spotting, excellent line selection, great endurance and even better attitude. No points in the trail where you must get out of the bike or the bike is too wide.

      I would rate this trail to be middle (and on certain features upper) intermediate on the tech level.
      It’s a fun trail with lots of good ups and downs, none of which feel too long or grueling. Great views, fun tech!

      I recommend getting a ride to this trailhead from Geoff at Hazard County shuttle, and starting with this uphill trail. Fun. Do the Navajo loop starting with this trail and you'll end on a nice downhill Ramble, then cruise all downhill back to town and enjoy a pint at Spitfire Smokehouse in town. Can't lose.

      We had planned a larger ride, but the day we went the winds along the ridge lines were ferocious! My wife is waif and only weighs a biscuit and the wind was moving her all over. That wind made the day an exception, and while we had fun, we are looking forward to the next time here to feel the trail without that element of nature that had us head back at Middle Earth.
