Mountain Biking Irish Hill

A good collection of xc style singletrack. The best option is to find the trail that goes to the top of the hill, along the ridge for a while then drops down the other side. It's a fun ride in both directions.

Unsure of the total mileage. Will edit as I explore more.

    Got back out to ride the singletrack section a bit more. Just a word of caution, roots and rocks get very slippery quickly. The trails themselves were in good shape, but with a little rain things can get slippery.

    Take a look at the posted map before riding, made the mistake of just heading up the darling road trail. Backside was riding down a stream and ended up on some back roads. Way back was an insane pain! When I finally found my way back to trailhead I realized that gorgeous looking singletrack right at the trailhead is indeed open to mountain bikes. Only got to ride a little bit of the singletrack but it was great. Hardpacked, some roots, nothing technical but it was fun from what I rode. There were multiple trail options to explore. May head back tomorrow to explore further depending on the weather.

    A network of many trails, with one really sweet trail built and blazed by MAMBA. Very little of technical significance, but lots of fun switchbacks and short climbs.
