Trail Description
About this trail
Description:This system is a great place for a good tempo run. The race loop, marked by the black arrows on the trees, is 6 miles long. However, there are numerous other trails that connect the larger outer trail. The trails usually require several sunny days to recover after a rain. Length: About 7-8 total miles

Review: Good trail system, lot of fun, was in good shape, but %$#^ the road leading back to the trailhead. The potholes are more like craters. It's easier to park at the soccer fields (first parking lot on right) and ride back there (just take a left at the first stop it eventually dead ends near the trailhead) unless you have a lifted vehicle and don't care about your tires.

Review: A really Fun Trail! A lot of love and hard work has been applied to this trail and it shows! A little off the beaten path, but I am not from this area, so what do I know. Park closes promptly at dark...so I was unable to ride the entire trail, but this reminds me of why I started mountain biking in the first place. Trails are smooth, flow well and are fun! Lots of options and some obstacles are being built for your pleasure! I will make an effort to return and enjoy this trail again when traveling through the area.

Review: Gave it a 4 for being available where it is, then had to subtract a point b/c of what the weather has done to it.

Rode this trail yesterday. A great trail for the area, but some of the steeper drop-ins and climb-outs were completely washed-out by all the heavy storms we've had over the last couple of weeks. There are sheer drops for the first foot or two onto the steep drop-ins, and at least one climb-out rewards your hard pushing with a 2-3 foot cliff at the top.

I guess some riders might give it more stars this way for being extra-challenging, I dunno. Lots of roots exposed from rain, too, but that's just part of it. Overall good, just watch the tops of the larger slopes.

Review: Rode about 2.5 miles on this trail today. some good flowing sections and overall a decent ride. With some work to maintain the trails a little better, this would be a really good ride.

Review: Copied from Google maps: here's the trailhead: 32.3071800,-90.3112200 When you enter the park go to the split of the main road and take a left (opposite of the go kart track) Go until you see the parking area. Road the trail today and it was a good ride.

Review: Is trail still open? I went there today, turned into a sketchy dirt road with trash (old TV set, random garbage) all over. I drive about 100 yards, and more garbage along the road, and I stopped at the large mud pits under a tree. (I just washed my truck and didn't want to get it muddy again.) I didn't see any sign posts marking the trail like Ridgeland trails have, marking the directions to the trails. Or was I at the wrong spot??

Review: A very nice beginner trail with some semi-intermediate features. Well marked and heavily wooded which makes great shade on a hot day. Made a full lap video, available here:

We were in town for a week, only had a chance to go once but would have loved to do a second lap at speed!

Review: I'm a trail runner from PA where there are endless trails, mountains, etc. I've been struggling to find anything comparable in MS and I came across this site and hit the trail today. I am adding a review to help other runners who might find this page as well. if this trail were in PA it'd be a 2 but it's probably one of the best available in the Jackson area so I gave it a 4. it's pretty short and the map is tough to follow but it offers runners a variety of terrain and the trail is marked well. I had no issues after 2-3 days of rain, but expect to get wet/muddy. bottom line is if you're in this area and want to trail run this may be your best bet - I've heard mixed reviews for running at ridgeland trails but I have yet to make it up there.
