Trail Description
About this trail
Beginners can handle this trail, but it also has alot of technical aspects to build bike skills. Really good trail to enjoy your MTB, there is also a 2 mile beginner loop across the road from the entry. Good to warm up on or to teach a little one to ride.

Some neat obstacles and technical regions on this trail. Stays wet is the only downside ... please stay off when the rains have been around. This trail does not drain well.

Review: Being sort of new to trail riding, I ride this trail at minimum, once a week, usually more actually. For intermediate riders, it's great, well kept, always dries super quick. I love it! Short, but sweet! The skills section is great also for those who need some confidence building action lol

Review: Not bad - similar in design to Phase II but gather water and retains it longer. Hit it this weekend the day after a great run at Phase II and it was just unenjoyable. I was battling leaves, wet roots and mud pits the whole time. When it's dry, though, it can be a blast!

Review: I moved from John Bryan to Phase 1 on the same day and it was my third day on a MTB. It was fun but definitely made me a bit nervous. I dropped my bike twice and I fell from it once. If you are disappointed by roots then this is not the trail for you. Takes an hour and a half, if you decide to walk in few places. I'd definitely take it soon to build my skills

Review: Awesome and flowy! Some great natural and man-made features. Totally manageable by a newer rider but has some features to help more experienced riders hone their skills. Note that there is a beginner loop across the street that makes a nice warmup - there is also a nice skills course as wel. Neither P1 or the beginner loop drain all that well - please exercise restraint if the trail surface isn't suitable for riding.

Review: Rooted. Had fun riding this one with my mom! When you come out to the highway it was confusing. I had to ask to get directions. But once I found the trail again the last part wasn't even a mile. One climb then it's all down hill we'll mostly.

Review: Ran the beginner loop a few times last evening. Great trail and some work has been done recently to add some technical tight turns and log overs. Great place to get your mtb legs.
