The Back 40 isn’t simply world-class riding; it’s a testament to the craft and sport. These 40 miles will make you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but are rideable from Slaughter Pen via the Greenway and Blowing Springs. This trail system is the brain child of six of the country’s most talented trail builders and will open in the fall of 2016.

Mostly dry but with a few sloppy spots that don't impact the ride other than get your bike dirty.
