Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is deteriorating fast!! The land "donated" to us was shallow at best. The top soil depth in this area is low, therefore, when a great deal of rain falls, the top soil just washes away!! This is not a matter of trail maintenance or riding when the trail conditions are not conducive. This is a matter of poor land!! If you are planning on riding here, plan on a ride that is fairly rough. Don't get me wrong, I am in no way trying to discourage anyone from riding here. I am just merely pointing out that suspension of some kind is highly recommended, especially if you plan on riding the technical side!!

Review: This trail has more splits and my ex girlfriend's personalities. And much like her, never knew where it was gonna take you. There's no signage here, some spray paint would be nice. Stay to the right at splits to ride the whole trail. Technical and rocky, best not for a super novice but fun and some crazy lines.

Review: fIve ridden this trail Wednesday and on Friday, It does get technical in some places and the drops off of some of the rock gardens are a bit steep. Look ahead at the trail. That is the best way to approach this trail. Look a few feet ahead of you at turns, or obstacles. Fun trail to build yourself up as a rider. Also fun to session on some of the rock gardens

Review: Rode this trail on Aug 21'st... As many others have stated this trail is pretty technical (at this point I would say one of the most technical near Nashville). I rode the trail riding a hardtail and found that it was doable, but I felt like someone had beat the crap out of me by the time I was done. I suspect that if you used a full suspension bike that this trail would be more forgiving.

Also... Trail is almost 12 miles not the 5 miles stated above.

Review: Rode here for the second time. First time was 3.5 years ago. Rode the entire thing this time, hanging nothing but rights all the way around and came out of there at 12 miles on the O. As stated below, this place is plenty technical and slow going fo the most part. Being from East Tennessee I am use to my share of hill climbs but that also means its followed by a nice downhill section. Not here. Lots of exposed rock, roots and rock gardens. Nice drops and rocking climbing sections. Anytime you start top get to a point that the trail flows, it ends with a hairpin back the other direction. A fun ride, just grueling in sections. A great place to work on skills if your not use to the terrain.

Review: First time riding out at this place and it's very rocky but still fun! Great place to work on technical rocky climbs and short descents. Over all it is a leg burner if you cross the road and don't expect to be sitting in the saddle much!! Standing tech all day but lots of fun. Signage needs some work and if you are looking for fast flow this isn't the place for you. Over all it's fun if you want to work on some skills in the rocks and slippery roots. Adjoining bmx track is top notch and is almost done with the remodel. Should be done beginning of April.

Review: I was last on this trail 2 years ago and am a much better rider now. This is a fun trail to ride with a few good rock features to climb. The trail was very muddy and it has not rained in a few days. Did both sides and got a good 10 miles in. The topo map in this app needs to be updated, I can send the .gpx to single tracks if they want it.

Review: This is one of the most technical trails in middle Tn. That comes from a very rocky terrain. There are very good climbs and descents but just know that it's going to be rough. This is where I go when I am looking for a challenging and demanding ride. If you are looking for flow and easier riding there are many other options that you will like better.

Review: Fairly technical with some moderate drops. Elevation change is minimal. A fun place to ride for sure.

Review: Have been out in 10 years and this trail was well worth the wait! I have the bruises and scrapes to show for it! Did the blue loop. Lots of great rocks and roots! A total confidence builder! Bring along your first aid kit! I can't wait to go back!!!

Review: I didn't do whole trail, but it looks so technical and long if you connect all the routes. There are many roots and rock that you need to have good balance with your bike
