Trail Description
About this trail
An old towpath runs along the canals, good for warm ups or beginners. Off this there is a trail marked by yellow (I think) blazes. It's tight, twisty singletrack and fun to ride. No major climbs here but a couple smaller ones scattered around. As you work your way south in the park you'll hit Goat Hill with some climbing and downhill. The towpath and other doubletrack run pretty much north-south through the park. If you follow it past Goat Hill there's a road you can cross for more towpath but not much singletrack there.

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!
