Mountain Biking Castalia Quarry Reserve

**   Add a review
#86 of 113 mountain bike trails in Ohio
#9,851 in the world

The main trail is is composed of gravel road and double track that loops around the quarry. The first 1.5 miles is a steady climb, followed by a steady downhill. There is a turnoff on the downhill that leads to a nice, short .4 mile singletrack with some hills and turns.
This trail is somewhat popular in the spring for locals as it dries out before other area trails and there are no good trails around it. Do not go out of your way to ride this trail, but if you do, look out for all of the walkers.

    It's an okay trai. Mainly for walkers and hikers, but there are a couple of nice single track areas if you're willing to go off the beaten path. Not worth going out of your way, but if you are in the area, it's worth a ride.

    This is a nice place to get in shape in the spring when the good trails are still soggy, but you won't find much excitement.
    Beginners might like this trail to get their feet wet.
