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: 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.

Review: I would like to say thanks to the previous poster Bruce alt.
I have added a map to photos to help people find some locations and where to go.
Go to Clinton from I-20 and get off at (exit 36) not 35 head south on springridge rd 1.5 miles There will be a stoplight and gas station on the corner of McRaven rd. Take a left. Then take your first left to a small building behind a fence (Tee Time Driving Range) follow the road on past towards the water tower then go left at the split "watch for potholes while going around the next turn and park at the spot surrounded by large logs.
The Trails start at either Gate I started at the double pole gate.

Trail Tip (Orange Signs indicate path for the main trail and Yellow Signs are to go back to parking if you are getting tired)

The Review:
I took my wife and Teen age nephews for our first trail ride
There are quite a few drops and short hard climbs with a few locations for jumps but, most can be bypassed except for a small drainage ditch that we had to step across carrying our bikes or if you are real fast and adventurous ramps to one side so you can jump it. there are a lot of very small roots and some light long inclines and a few mud puddles some people have been riding around. Be Careful when going down some small drops as you may not notice a drop off in the next few hills if going fast for your first time.
This trail is in decent condition and I would like to thank the unknown volunteers that have been doing great work to maintain the trails.

This trail need more respectable people to go and ride it out to help cut some paths and smooth them out also if you see fallen branches or limbs please remove them every hand helps and there is a trash barrel at the parking lot (The trail was very clean no litter).

I will be going back when I get the chance.

Review: This is a great little beginner track for a nice relaxing ride. It's dossile enough for your friends who have never been mountain biking before, but there's enough drops and fast bits to keep all six miles interesting. Fairly well maintained, but there were some muddy spots that I had to walk around every once in a while. Overall, well worth the trip. I'll definitely be going back.
