Mountain Biking Bayou Point

****   Add a review
#7 of 34 mountain bike trails in Mississippi
#2863 in the world

Somewhat tight and technical in areas. Short, punchy hills. Fun ridden in both directions, if ridden counter clockwise there is less climbing but if ridden clockwise there are a few decent flowing downhill sections. A few log rides mixed in near the trailhead with more fun stuff in the works throughout the trail.

    As of 2-31-2019 this trail is in great shape. If there has been a lot of rain like we've had- this is the go to trail, it can be ridden 4-6 hours after a heavy rain. The leaves had been recently blown and you can tell this trail is greatly taken care of. 5.7 miles long and riding both directions is a must to enjoy the jump and drop features this trail has to offer. The left direction is a bit easier wilts less climbing. Once you learn the momentum, this is a super fun trail with a bit of everything for every rider.

    This was probably an awesome trail when fist constructed and still is yet a great trail, just needs a little tlc. There are some nice climbs on the first section giving you a super great work out and a few nice descents. Second section is a little faster with a few nice jumps to the side of the track. Trail ending with some great berms complete with steep drops and a little air on the other side. Not much traffic and little done as far as leaves so careful on the turns.

    Technical, has great view of the lake, well maintained, not a lot of traffic on the trail, and very close to the Dam Trails

    Tight and twisty, good trail to learn bike handling and cornering. One short off loop with a few big berms. Trail always well maintained and is normally the first trail in the area that is rideable after a good rain. You can also add in the dead end gravel road near the Bayou Point entrance for more climbing practice.
