Trail Description
About this trail
An old towpath (Plummer's Trail) runs along the canals, good for warm-ups or beginners. Off of this on the west is Ribbon Candy - it's tight, twisty singletrack and fun to ride with some flat, fast terrain, a few small bridges, and even a little fishbowl. No major climbs here, but a couple smaller ones scattered around. As you work your way south in the park, you'll find Goat Hill on the southeast parcel. There are some steep climbs and great techy downhill - enough to keep most NE riders on their toes. The trails seem to be under constant development, but signage is great and you'll have a ball. Goat Hill can also be accessed by E. Hartford Ave and going up "Down and Out." If you elect to cross Providence Rd (122) by the treatment plant, you can also enter Badlands. Great NE-style singletrack riding here.

Review: Time-trial markers (yellow triangles) are currently up on the Goat Hill portion, navigating most of the trails there and some new ones (Rock and Rolla). Great work out and cheers to Mike for his work on the trails!

Review: Great selection of trails here, hills, flats, switchbacks, etc. probably my favorite place to ride in the area, better than Rayburn. I consider these trails to be intermediate, not advanced. There is nother here that is overly technical. I spent about 2 hrs here on Friday and didnt get bored. Highly recommended.

Review: Next to the treatment plant, you can cross the train tracks and 122 and get into some VERY good and techy trail with some great climbs and rewarding descents. The BUMS as always build crazy trail, and there's a lot to enjoy over there and test your skills.

Review: Plummer's Landing is the main parking point and is basically trail running along the canals, which is great for beginners and frankly kind of fun. Off of these trails are some VERY fun and swooshy singeltrack. As mentioned, it's mostly flat, but there are great moments of quick climbs and descents, bridges, crossings, etc. There are blue square markers to follow, and making your way to Goat Hill offers a little more climbing, though not much. This is just a FUN place to ride.

Review: Although I've struggled to understand the layout (I need to find a map!), there are some really good trails here! Lots of fun, tight, and twisty singletrack! There's not a ton of elevation change, but the trails are well built and use the land well. I'd call this an intermediate area, but there some places that will give you a technical challenge. This place is definitely worth checking out, but I'd recommend riding with someone who is familiar with it. Happy riding!
