Mountain Biking Chacala Trail

***   Add a review

This is a mostly level trail that goes through Paynes Prairie. It is doubletrack that offers beautiful scenery and a good cardio workout. Although it is level there are long stretches of sugar sand that really give your lungs a workout.

    Its a fairly basic trail which has a decent amount of foot traffic on the weekends so be careful flying around corners. There are some sections of sugar sand and some trees down.

    One of my first trails on my new bike! It had been 2 days since last rain. Trail was mostly dry, some moisture in leaf litter and a couple of muddy ruts, but nothing a beginner couldn't handle. Pleased.

    this is a nice little trail to get out and connect with nature. Not much of a technical challenge as it is all doubletrack. Look out for wild animals and enjoy the peace and quiet. Also watch out for sugar sand
