Trail Description
About this trail
The trail begins near a few cabins that sit above a small pond. The trail has a few technical rocky climbs, descents, and switchbacks, with some very fun and fast sections in the woods. Very well maintained by the local shop High Gear Cyclery, located in Emporia near 6th Street and Commercial Street.

Review: This trail is always a blast. The heavy rains this summer really brought out the challenge. The roots and rocks are more exposed making you push yourself mentally and physically. Just damn good fun!

Review: My Son and I rode today, our first time on a trail in 5 years. Compared to trails we rode in North Carolina, it was great. Lots of roots, rocks, turns, climbs, and fun. Just wish I wasn't so out of shape!

Review: This is a good workout trail that has a lot to offer. Switchbacks, rocky climbs, technical downhill, pump track, and fast singletrack. There is a lot to see here also. weather you want to blast through and push the clock or just ride and take in all Camp Alexander has to offer you can't go wrong. This trail is very well maintained by our friends at High Gear Cyclery.

Review: gr8 fun. the first 2/3s are less advanced, a bit of a twisty woods ride, with lots of small rocks in the dirt. then it gets really good with a bunch of tight switch backs into sharp climbs, and decent. and the pump track. could use some spring touch up maintenance.

Review: This trail is well maintained. With all the extremely high wind we've had in the past few weeks the trails are in great shape. KUDOS To team High Gear and the volunteers. We had our first heavy frost and was perfect for riding. For local Emporia, I think this trail holds up to some of the better trails in Kansas. You get a taste of everything you want in a trail. Technical, climbs, downhill, fast track, tight turns, pump track, rocks, roots, and lots of dirt.

Review: An interesting trail outside of Emporia. This trail is well maintained and marked. Some interesting sections of rocks and roots through trees provide some challenge. Other areas are fast and flowing. Would go back and ride again.

Review: There is a all new beginning trail here at Camp Alexander. The changes were made due to the erosion up in the pines. The new beginning is still fresh but uses more of the landscape. Nice switchbacks and short climbs. Lost the one nice down hill but you gain a little over 1/4 mile of trail. Trail markers are not up yet but if I know the High Gear Team they will be up soon. The end at the small pond behind the buildings has changed also. They used some of the ending to open up the beginning. So instead of heading towards the beginning along the pond and back up near the buildings , then down to the levy and across the bridge. Now you just turn left and cross the levy to the bridge. Look at the new route.
