Q: Does the trail have some big drops and jumps -Ozzie4

A: There are a few drops, especially near the lake where it's hilly. There are some humps that can be jumped, but no jump features designed into the trail (I've only been on about 2/3 of the trails but didn't see any jump features.)

Review: Rode this trail for the first time. I parked in a University apartment complex crossed by the bike route which enters the trail from the East on Old Taylor Road. Parking is also available on Chucky Mullins Drive next to the appliance factory construction site where the South Campus rail trail crosses Chucky Mullins. The trails form loops on either side of a high tension line easement - a bike path follows the easement, and a singletrack trail continues along the easement under the wires, deeply rutted by rains. I explored the trails north of the high tension lines and south of Highway 278. Trails are twisty, loopy and poorly marked, and often cross one another. It was easy for me to get turned around, and I found myself going around the same section of trail multiple times. The trails were well packed and dry despite some rain last night. They need more traffic - lots of small broken branches little the trails and like to roll out from under wheels in turns. Most of the trail is packed dirt, but parts are sandy with some gravel. The terrain is quite hilly, so there are some twisty climbs and a few flowy gradual descents, but the trails are a good workout. This being my first time here I was taking it easy - I don't get down to Oxford often, but will try to ride again. Riding them several times just to get to know the area would make it more fun - a bit of a tough slog for an older guy from the flatlands like me, but still a lot of fun.

Review: Fun trails for in town riding. Tight turns. Not much in the way of tech. My ride was brief and it was after the leaves had fallen, so I did lose the trail a couple of times. There seems to be a ton of trail out there though.

Similar Trail: Urban singletrack in Atlanta, there's just more of it in one place in Oxford.

Review: There is a ton of trails here. All seem to have pretty good flow but you do have to be careful of these little slick spots they have. It will seem pretty dry and then there will be a little 2-3 wet section usually are a nice root and it will bite you if you're not looking for it. The only major problem I had will the trail is it is very poorly marked and did not see a single trail map anywhere. But it was a lot of fun and I will be back.

Review: Great trail system! Plenty of trails and they are all very well maintained. Not a whole lot of super technical terrain, but you can find some if you look for it.

Review: traveling on hwy 6, take Colosseum Drive down to the Whirlpool Plant and park. You can get on the railbed from there. The Trails branch off the railbed and are kinda hard to spot so keep your eyes peeled.
