Description
A multiple loop network of singletrack with challenging climbs and descents. A 2 mile beginner loop offers a good warmup with a few bridges and a \"teepee\" bridge. Over 20 wooden bridges and stunts on the 5+ mile intermediate loop. There is a new Black Diamond section that will be open soon that features an 80\' narrow curvy bridge, a 60\' bridge that is 12 feet off the ground and only 22\" wide, and a 20 foot ramp that launces you over a 10 foot wide creek jump...

Review: Update to my last post, the MORCS race "MZ Dust n Bones" has been changed, as photoepic stated, to April 26th. This was due to a conflict with Brookhaven's road race's on May 4th. Come by both weekends for great biking activities!

Review: As of first of March 2014, the new 357 loop is still drying out from winter. I got a early run on it last month ...you will love it! The new bathroom is a great addition too!!! The MORCS race "MZ Dust n Bones" is listed as May 4th 2014. Get more info @ "MZ Racing" on facebook and don't miss the new video "tracks"...

Review: Trail is now 9 miles. (as of feb 2014) the new sections have a bit more climbing but always rewarded with some fun stuff. We've had a horribly wet winter especially slowing the 'breaking in' of the new section, but by springtime she should be tip-top. MORCS series race is here on April 26.. Come join the fun.

Review: Easy fast and fun. Great visuals, easy parking, place to hang out, cool man man stuff and the trail is marked really well. I arrived alone and it felt really safe. The car ride to the trail is kinda sketch but it is totally worth checking out.

Review: Great bike trail to ride, ranges from an easy beginner trail to two more advanced trails. There was an expert rider coase there also, but after riding the other 3 loops we called it a day. It was a very fun, enjoyable ride with a lot of scenery, bridges, jumps, steep drops, hills & turns. I road today with a family of four, my wife & I are in our 40's, we had our two sons along with us, 23 & 13 years old. We all had a great time.

Review: MZ 'A' loop is a total of 6.5 miles now. New EWOK section recently opened with a short steep downhill that launches you over the next 400yards of flowing curvy singletrack that has 8 nice bridges on that section alone. Several dirt berms have been added thru-out in some really good spots. Trail is well maintained and marked well.

Review: Great trails for MS. Several cool features that I have not seen at other MS trails. Black diamond trail is a little hard to find and needs some maintenance but fun. They were getting the trail ready for the spring when we were there. Must do trail for MS riders

Review: Rode this trail twice over the past week or so. Great ride and well maintained. Nice change of pace from the Comite trails at BREC. Man made obstacles are fun and well built. Trails are very well marked and easy to follow; black diamond section is found by taking the trail to the left of the American flag at Marker #3 on the A Loop.

Review: I hit this awesome trail up this weekend. Rode the white arrow route (A loop) and the Perimeter loop and loved 'em both. Would have given it a 5 rating but could not find the black diamond route. Huge thanks to the crew who put this trail together. As a beginner, the tech sections were great practice. One of the jumps was awesome, but caught me slightly off guard. Bridges and ramps were built great. I hope they extend the trail. Thanks again

Review: Pretty tight singletrack through dense forest. There are several fun ramps, drops and lots of wooden bridges and stuff to keep it interesting. There are some short but fast downhills at points. I would say the hills are smaller than Clear Springs , but still some short steep stuff to pump you out. One loop is about 5.8-6.0 miles. The loop is short enough that you can hammer down and time your fastest loop. Nice trail head and signage... you cant get lost. Looks like they are building a nice shed too. I never found the Black Diamond section, but just did the main loop several times to get out some mileage. Fun trail to do if you are in the area...

Review: This trail was very demanding. Me and a friend rode it today. Weather was great, trials are well marked and maintained. But we didn't find the diamond trail. Rode the bone yard, brier patch, badlands and a few others. Jumps was a lot of fun. The only thing I could suggest is have a trail map. But this is a must go ride trail loads of fun and challenges

Review: My buddy and I rode this trail today for the first time and we both were very impressed! We drove about two and half hours from Gulfport and we got our worth out of the trail. We managed to negotiate every obstacle including the wooden skinny that was quite high off the ground. The local crew did an outstanding job bringing a little bit of BC flare to Mississippi!!! I will be back real soon just as soon as it dries up a little. Thanks to everyone for delivering and giving everyone the best little trail in Mississippi.

Review: This is a great trail. Very well maintained and cared for. Many chances for jumps, but sometimes they sneak up on you because there is a creek on the other end. One section is very technical and narrow, and other sections are wide and very fast (20 mph). White trail is pretty challenging and the yellow kind of easy. New black diamond section will be sweet when complete. The bridge and drop are a blast, and the creek jump is a challenge on a hardtail. Great uphills with rewarding downhills. Will return ( 2 hour 20 min drive)

Review: I rode this trail today with a few locals that I met at the trail head. The trails are very well designed and maintained with exciting wooden structures that aren't overly common in the area. They have multiple bridges, ramps, jumps, and a "teeter-totter". Good mix of downhill and climbing sections. Mt. Zion trails are good place to ride. A lot of bridges and stunts have optional bypasses but the new black diamond section that will be open soon meets the criteria for the rating.
