This loop is well marked and the fine people of COMBO deserve the credit for a wonderful technical challenge. It is clear that some of the MTB riders in this area take their trail riding seriously. This is a narrow singletrack with technical sections throughout. Not a sleeper, since most of the track is on the side slope and the dirt is fast and loose.
The trail also features some sweet man made obstacles and bridges. Not for the newbie but a confident rider should attempt these obstacles with due respect of course. The trail is relatively flat with little climbing and little downhills, although the track was nice and fast in spots. COMBO deserves much Kudos on this wonderful track. Please do not ride this or Phase I when the trail is closed due to weather. You can meet the folks at combo at : www.mtbohio.org ..... Oh ... why a 9 and not a 10? well ... a hill or 2 would be nicer ... this is one of the best in Ohio!

From South of Columbus : I-71 and get off at the Polaris exit(121) and go right(if you are coming from the north go left). Take Polaris East parkway to Worthington Rd.(about 1 mile) Turn left. Go until you come to Africa Rd. Turn left. Keep going straight, through the 4 way stop(you'll see the dam on your left). Go straight until the next 4 way stop(Cheshire Rd.) Go Straight and park at the first lot on your left. The trailhead is across the road up the hill. Most of the Mountain Bike signs on the road lead to Phase I. Phase II has parking at the Chesire Picnic area and the trail head is across the road just East of the Parking Lot.
