    A very basic trail system, great for beginners and those looking for an easy ride.

    Currently, it's a work-in-progress but nonetheless it's a great addition to the area trails and one that can be enjoyed by anyone. It's not physically demanding unless you want to shred but unless you're in a time crunch you should just make the drive to the Quarry trail system for more challenging riding.

    Update. The trail leading to the bridge has been extended to the creek. You can cross the creek and continue riding on the other side. You can see the trail and it is a quick climb around. Fred Trails continues to work to complete an easy to navigate loop around Motts.

    This is a Fred Trails update. Today, we added additional bike trail which leads to a bridge that, for now, ends in a patch of ferns. We are working hard to connect trails and have a loop all the way around Motts Reservoir. Come on down the Fredericksburg and combine a ride of the Quarry and Motts trails. Good fun.
