Q: What types of features does the expert section contain and how long is it? -Kuato

A: A large drop, a really narrow spot on the side of a hill, an extremely narrow bridge, a pretty difficult climb, and a high bridge. I might be missing a few things, but that's what I remember. Isn't too long. Probably less than 1/4 mile.

Review: Some of the best trails I have ever had the pleasure of riding. Well thought out and well maintained. Bring cash to make a small donation, a fair request as the trails are super nice!

Review: We headed North out of New Orleans to get to some actual Mountain Bike trails in Mississippi. It took us over two hours to get to the Mt. Zion Bike trails, but it was seriously worth the drive. We'd like to apologize to the trail builders in advance that we're reviewing Mt. Zion on department store bikes. These trails are awesome, meticulously maintained, and obviously well loved. The first thing you see when you get to the trailhead is a neat area to chill after your ride -complete with complimentary popsicles. Don't forget to bring a few bucks to slip into the donation box for these guys as they're really putting a lot of time and effort into these trails. There were so many drops and perfect jumps built into these trails.These trails were a TON of fun. We'd suggest that if you are within driving distance from Mt. Zion you make it a point to get out there and ride it!

Review: This trail is legit. Lots of uphills! But the down hills are rewarding. There are some North Shore like wooden features here and there, a pretty difficult Cecil, and one section that is extremely steep downhill but bypassable. This is the best trail within three hours of New Orleans for sure.

Review: Rode for the first time Saturday (5/19) The local caretakers were extremely friendly and very helpful. The trail was far better than I could imagine. Very well maintained with lots of cool obstacles. Nice climbs that are challenging with great down hills as a reward. Can't wait to go again.

Review: The most enjoyable I've experienced so far. Just the right amount of up hill challenges without the dreaded soul crushing cardio burn. This, along with too many burms, bridges, and descents to count, I can't wait to make the 4 hour drive to return. They told me entering the trail head I would exit with a smile on my face and they were dead on right.
