Trail Description
About this trail
Welcome to Ohio's oldest privately owned, open to the public mountain bike trail system. Funded by donations and built by volunteers... 16 years of blood, sweet and gears!
Out of all the trails i\'ve ridden in ohio it is still my favorite. It has some nice technical parts and some good uphills and downhills. Vulture's Knob is 125 acres along the majestic and mighty Killbuck River in the rolling hills of Wooster Ohio. The facilities are open 365 days a year for open riding via donations or volunteer memberships! This venue offers a glimpse into the past with old school fall line trails mixed with newer design concepts and features. The trails offer up some of the most challenging singletrack and most unique man made outdoor trail features the area has to offer.

Review: Rode here the other day for the first time and thought I should write a review since there has not been one this year. Nice trail, well maintained, eay to follow, but much more of a blue trail than black. Nice easy trail with a few hills and only one major rocky down hill that I found, but still a nice ride.

Review: It's tough for me to give a full review since my first time riding here was during the fall, so everything was leaf covered. But otherwise, this is the most well built singletrack around here. Great technical features (a few terrifying ones), and some awesome flowing sections with some jump and berm options.

Review: Lots of fun flowie runs, good mix of jumps & bridges. The land seams to drain well ... with a fair helping of elevation. But the place could use some updates ... signage, wood bridges and such

Review: This is a great trail if you need a good challenge and get ready for your legs to burn. Beware of the"Furnace" section if you go on an 80 degree day, brutal.

Review: Seriously awesome trail. Unique terrain with some gnarly trail features. The trail was a bit wet which made an already technical trail more difficult, but it didn't stop me from hitting the spines and going down the devils backbone or whatever the hell that steep drop is..all fun. This trail is only recommended to the experienced rider.

Review: So my brother had his bachelor party here and got me to join him. I have owned a 'mountain bike', but it is a rigid Raleigh M40, so he got me on a friend's second bike.

Good bike, but holy cow, this was the first real mountain biking I have ever done. I have been on a bike forever and was a country boy growing up, but this trail was awesome. I watched plenty of videos ahead of time of people on this trail and maybe that helped to prepare me, but I did relatively well...as in no broken bones!

So since then, I have take up MTB at a sprinting pace and can't wait to get back here to better hit the tight switchbacks, steep dips, dirt skills section and all the other awesome obstacles here.

Review: **3/23/13- Trail is open, but all of the melted snow calls for one messy track. About half of the trail is a muddy mess and the other half is manageable. Nonetheless, probably the best trail in Ohio i've been to.

Review: This trail has some long, sustained climbs that give you a decent workout. The technical features are amazing and they just keep coming. My only real complaint is the flow, which is definately lacking in some areas. Still, the builders managed to stuff more mountain biking fun into a tiny area than I would have believed possible. My hat is off to them. Everyone should get out to this trail atleast once. It can humble all but the best riders.
