About This Trail
added by Guest on December 31, 2002
 
This trail is unbelievable. It is some of the smoothest, tightest, fastest singletrack I have ever been on. There is a main trail (which is two small loops connected by a two-way section) and there is the Razor's Edge branch, which just by-passes the two-way section to make it a true loop. Combine this trail with the canal trail and you have a good workout. Lots of twists and turns, very few roots, a few fast gullies, and lots of neat views of the river. A great trail.

Review: Great trail for bikers and hikers, smooth and flat. At the pump station and mile 1.17 there is port-a-potty. Nice view of the river.

Review: WOW!! What a great trail. Definitely some spots where you can get in trouble by picking the wrong line or grabbing the front brake too much on a down hill but overall this is an AMAZING trail with some beautiful scenery.

Review: What sweet trail! I hit it up for the first time early Saturday after running the canal for some cardio. Like others have said it is short but a lot of fun with some tight twisting sections. A few times around stretches out the fun! If you've not ridden this trail yet it is worth checking out. The SORBA-CSRA crew has done a fine job with this one!

Review: Very fun trail. Short, but still a lot of fun. Very tight and twisty in places, good for working on your cornering and bike handling skills. A few fast sections, and a few technical rooty climbs. The climbs are very short, but also very steep.

Review: This is a fun trail, with only a few slightly difficult sections. The only downside is that it is short, so I usually end up doing a few laps if I come here. This trail difficulty is somewhere between beginner and intermediate.

Review: Fun singletrack trail located just off the canal path. Fast and flowy, hats off to the folks who maintain these trails. Directional travel by day. Good signage.

Review: This is a nice trail for after work and you can do multible laps for a good work out. I don't recommend staying till afterwork, unless you like homeless and drug deals. Bring a friend.

Review: Trail was in pretty good shape. Rode it last thrusday. Some places look a bit washed out, probably more so singe the rain. Overall lots of fun. Going to do it again very soon. WATCH FOR TICKS... Been twice, been bitten twice.

Review: I love this trail. Not too hard, but definitely not for beginners. In the summer months remember to bring water on this trail, it can get really stuffy. Rode this trail 13 June 2007, and there was a tree that had fallen across the trail. Be cautious, especially after bad storms. Overall, this trail is really fun and with the Augusta Canal trail it is a really good workout.

Review: Probably my new favorite in the CSRA. I rode this trail when I first started mountain biking, and it totally whooped my butt. So this morning I tackle it solo, and I had an absolute blast. I think i stayed on the "red" section. I kinda got lost a bit so I'm not sure. It was very fast for me, taking about 15 minutes to complete. I would have done it twice, but I went a little too fast and needed to call it a day. Overall an awesome ride. Probably needs some trail work though, many areas where the mud as dried with tire tracks in it. But I must say if you live in the CSRA area, check this one out. Also, if you wouldnt mind a novice tagging along, email me!

Review: I took my 14 year old son for his first singletrack ride here. We both LOVED it! This is one short, challenging trail. With the dips and climbs, this trail required a few dismounts for me, and lots more for my son, so it was never boring. The trail was clean, smooth, and clear. Even though there are lots of really good trails nearby, I'll be going back to this one frequently.

Review: This trail will challenge riders of all levels. Beginners will gasp at The Gully while more experienced riders will gasp at the steep off -canter downhill on the red trail that leaves little room for error (error means a steep drop into the Savannah River). I recommend starting at the Savannah River Pavilion Park at the river end of Evans-to-Locks Road in Evans, GA and riding 3 easy miles down the river trail to the Pumping Station trailhead (at the old Pumping Station of course). This approach takes you in along a beautiful, rocky stretch of the Savannah River.

Review: This trail i awsome. It has gon through some changes in the last couple of years. Not to smooth anymore and for the daredevels the have put real technical log rides and bridges. The trail is fast and fun with quick turns some steep drops not including the Gully which is probaly the trails signature area.
