HCC is working hard to bring more recreational opportunities to Homer in the form of single-track mountain bike trails. In 2016 we added length to the "Rollin' Coal Trail" making it a solid 1 mile. With a lot of elbow grease we hope to double this in 2017.

       Not safe to ride hard, but I love the area and that homer has a single track finally. The dirt is wonderful. The banks aren’t high enough or are nonexistent in some bits. Looks built for fat bikes. All of it could probably be fixed in a day with one big trail crew

       Just wanna say again, not safe to ride fast, banking turns seems entirely foreign. Also none of it is tilled up so if you don’t have a fat bike prepare for a butt massage ????

       This is a hand built trail by a small club in a small town with a small scene. We would be stoked if those who feel the trail is not up to their standards would step up and volunteer to help bring them up to speed. In the meantime, please enjoy at whatever speed you are comfortable at riding them at. I like to rally, post dropped all the way. Of course I've ridden this trail more than anyone so know where I need to scrub speed and know what gear to be in.
