What & Where

The trail system is about 30 miles southwest of Akron, 50 south of Cleveland and 90 miles north of Columbus. The venue has hosted a full mountain bike race schedule, including night races, 24 hour races, Xterra trail run races and adventure races, "The Knob" is considered the most unusual technical single track in northeastern Ohio. Small painted signs give indication about what to expect around the next turn, with names like Rock Tunnel, Fern Gully, Oh Sh#, the Cradle, Friar Bryan's Forest, Ant City ...well, you get the idea. Creative and fun from the many log bridges to the cradle bridge and suspension bridge.
