Mountain Biking Eastport

This is about 8 or 9 miles. Basically flat and in the trees. Watch for ticks. Interesting singletrack through open field. Very narrow and affectionately known as "Field of Misery". Stays dry even after a good rain.

    This could be a nice trail even with all the ticks and chiggers . The trail is far too overgrown to be an enjoyable ride.There is even a part of the trail that is unrideable because of low hanging tree limbs ( although that section is less than 50 yards ). A better option would be Manorville Hill first 3 miles and when you get to the big stone turn around and go back ,for a total of 6 miles . Or precede further into Manorville for 12 miles .

    Warning those 12 miles are not flat

    There are ticks everywhere here!!! Stay away and don't even think about brining a dog. Please, I warn all. My dog and I went there for a run today and we walked out COVERED!!

    Been coming here years. Way before MHP (Manorville Hills Preserve). It's 7 miles. Do EXTRA CREDIT and you switch back into main loop and add roughly 3 more miles. Do it fast and you'll feel the workout. Perfect for a mellow exercise. Want more strenuous ride, head a few miles north on 111 to MHP

    Not a bad place to take someone who has just gotten use to riding a mountain bike on flat surfaces and knows how to shift and brake, etc. It's about 8 miles flat and has some turns and some small elevation changes.

    This trail isn't maintained all that well and often there's a ton of pine down that makes for a very soft ride.

    The trail has potential for much more if it were cleaned up a bit since it ties in with Manorville Hills. However, there's quite a different feel between these two trails so please don't think they are the same type of terrain and elevation.

    Basically a flat trail, nothing exciting. Good for after work or a quick workout. Can get very overgrown. Nice leg workout on the carpet of pine needles. Trail stays dry most of the time. Nice narrow ride through grassy field. Steady uphill for a mile or so. Tests your steering control. This is a fairly remote area. Bring everything you need and a cell phone.
