This section of Trail 89 is one of the most popular and is fun and flowing. Truly a section of the Centennial Trail not to be missed. This section is intermediate overall with several short steeper climbs. There are great views of Pactola Reservoir along this section of trail. Quite often MTB riders will combine this section of the Centennial Trail with the Pilot Knob TH - Deer Creek TH as a stellar out and back ride.

Access Info

Park at either Deer Creek TH located about 1/4 mile west of US-385 on Silver City Road or at Rapid Creek Trail Head located about 1/2 mile east of US-385 on Rapid Creek Basin Road.
