Mountain Biking Zulu

*****   Add a review
#12 of 98 mountain bike trails in Indiana
#637 in the world

The trail starts at the top of the Advanced Access Trail with a drop down--the trail the crosses under a wooden bridge) and enters a quick climb. From here the trail flows into three small jumps and then winds through some walls of small valleys resulting from strip-mining.

Riders follow a steep drop to the right and the trail skirts the shores of two small lakes. Bikers then climb into a section punctuated by some steep drops (saddles) with physics taking them from the tops of one small ridge to the next. A particularly fun section involves banking to-and-fro across the walls (not bench cut) of two small ridges.

MTBers then come across a rock garden and then the biggest of the drops. After another climb on rockier and narrow track, two smaller saddles and a ride across an over/under wooden bridge/drop feature closes out the loop, entering into the flowing Zulu Trail exit that after a sharp right and squeeze between trees eventually hooks up with the KA-BAR Trail.

    This trail is RAD! It is probably the "rawest" trail in the park... more "au naturale" than the rest. Very challenging, but OH SO FUN!! If you are up for the challenge... you must ride this trail! Oh, and check out that new feature!! WOW!
