Trail Description
About this trail
Well maintained singlletrack trails through mature pine forest and some bottoms. There are a few hilly spots and some fast downhills at times. Due to the tree canopy, these trails stay relatively shaded and can be ridden all year. The trails are well maintained by local riders, so the trails are usually clean, open and fast. Minimal sandy spots with the vast majority of the trails being hardpacked dirt with not much roots. Good Trail system.

The spot 277THD on the map is at the top of the steep hill, 1/4 mile West of Jackson road on the right. Take this singletrack and follow the arrows for 1.7 miles. This will eventually dump you back on the paved trail. For more single track, get back on the paved trail and continue along the paved, or take connecting singletrack (8-Mile) trail until you come to the pipeline crossing. Go left along pipeline for 300' and singletrack starts on your left and right. (Pipeline trails and Death Valley Trails)

Another 5 miles here

There is a new trail section that has been added, a total of 6.50-7.0 miles of singletrack is now in place. The topo map above does not show the "rails to trail" paved trail, which basically cuts across the center of the map between the two loops.

Enthusiastic group heading up this trail system. Come join us..

Review: Very tight and footy. Trails are very poorly marked. One area was entirely closed. Some bridges in poor repair with one on the entry trail completely washed out. Certainly won't drive To Hattiesburg to ride these trails again.

Review: Fun little trail system that uses the terrain they have available to good effect. Nothing too challenging and not much climbing but still worth a visit. Signage was pretty good. Lots of intersections but as long as you pick a color and follow the signs you'll be OK.

Review: Awesome time here. Trails mostly smooth, and easy, but with plenty of rolling hills. Red is miles of smooth go fast stuff, Turtle is pretty mellow, and hilly. Rain Shed is nice, I think it goes better backwards. The back loops , Dam and Tufburg, are a little more challenging. Trails are pretty well marked, but I had a hard time in the dark. Also gr8 new parking lot and trail head area of of Jackson rd.

Review: I was pleasantly surprised by this trail system. Not a lot of good terrain, but great use of what there is. Trail markings were pretty good, however the yellow trail could get some attention. This was a great way to break up a long drive from Atlanta to Baton Rouge!

Review: Well maintained trails that travel through mature stands of Longleaf Pines. Beginner loop is wide & smooth. The more advanced trails feature rooty switchbacks mixed with gentle climbs and descent. Trails are well marked.
