Mountain Biking Baker Creek

"I've never been to these trails but I would imagine they are similar to Turkey Creek and Horn Creek. Please review this trail to give a better description.

Rider questions

Q: Has this trail been re-vamped since 2015 to make it rideable?
A: No. I took my bike, but ended up walking half of it just clearing debris. It is impossible to find the trail currently when it leaves the old forest roads. It could be a nice trail, but is completely overgrown. I could not even hike it without losing my place.

    Isn't this a review for a similarly named trail in Tennessee?

    This really is a shame. It is such a nice area, and there are so many other nice trails near by. I know the last time I rode there (about 4 years ago) The trail was almost gone. I can imagine that it is a waste now. Hopefully, one day it can be rebuilt!

    What a waste of time. I drove all the way there and spoke with the Ranger about it and he pointed out the trail head and even gave me a map. But the trails are overgrown from lack of use and many of the markers are missing. I rode for and hour and a half and lost track of the times I got turned around and ended up off the trail in the woods. If it weren't for my Garmin 800 I would have had a tough time getting out of that place. The sad thing is that it looks like it could be (and probably used to be) a pretty decent trail system. My hunch is that with FATS being so close that these trails are neglected now to the point where they're pretty much useless.

    This trail is now open. Baker Creek is closed from October 1st - March 11th. Don't forget that there are other great trails close by!

    Got to this trail, only to find the park gate closed with a sign saying "closed for the season." So don't waste your time traveling great distances to this trail until sometime in the spring (I assume). So CLOSED FOR THE SEASON

    This is a beautiful trail, very wild with lots of wildlife.
    Bring bug spray and what ever you would like to snack on after the ride as there is no little stores out that way.

    This trail is fairly new so it is a pretty rough ride. There are a lot of dips and holes in the trail that will be smoothed out over time as more people start to ride these trails. There were alot of leaves on the trail when we went so it was hard to follow the trail at times (although this trail is VERY well marked). There is alot of elevation change on this trail but never more than 100 ft at a time. Overall, a pretty interesting trail.
