Trail Description
About this trail
6 different loops of single track consisting of rock gardens, short steep climbs, fast rolling meadows, with several dry creek crossings. Restrooms are located at Lake Lawtonka School House Slough at the eastern trailhead, in the middle of Medicine Park, and at the Lake Elmer Thomas boat ramp as you enter the wildlife refuge on HY-49. Green and red loops have the most flow but are closed for hunting Oct. 1 thru Jan. 15. Blue loop is the easiest, but still would be considered intermediate level. Orange, yellow, and black loops are rocky, technical, and challenging with grueling climbs and boulders. Check out the trail map at www.medicinepark.com.

Review: Rode the east side from the trailhead. Lots of fun tackling the field rock and rocky sections in the woods. Trail is rutting in some locations and a little clearing is needed. Trail layout provided smooth sections, short steep climbs, twists and turns, and plenty of rock to negotiate.

Review: Medicine Park is a great little 'must-see' community. The locals at Base Camp are a friendly & active bunch. Beautiful views of cacti, rock formations & lake. Respect the rocks, be safe, & have a great ride.

Review: First time visitor here 4/15-16. Beautiful setting and cool little place (Medicine Park). Very welcoming local riders (Mark and buds at Base Camp)! Tried east trails and found they were a bit much for intermediate riders. West trails were a little damp but we were able to ride Blue, upper hillside trail of Green and Red loop. Highly recommend central south riders to go to these trails.
