Trail Description
About this trail
fun trail. The Tuskegee National Forest is a great location. Trail itself is somewhat difficult and is a little rough for newbies. Be careful of some exposed roots.

Review: Trail maintenance is lacking at some places. The southern half of the Trail is fun as it it is all downhill heading south. I don't recommend driving from too far out of your way for this one.

Review: Jumps? Flowy? Nope. Just a straightforward cross country trail that's good for exercise. If you want to test your bike handling skills, go to Chewalca Park. About 20% of it is on fire road. Wear orange during deer hunting season.

Review: Fun little trail. There is a small portion ridden on forest service road. A recent controlled burn in the area makes for a neat looking and open area as you bomb that short downhill. The whole trail is in much better shape than neighboring Bartram. Downfall, only 4 miles long and it's not a loop.

Review: The trails are being cleared and maintained now by a group called C.A.M.P. Find them on facebook to find out about organized rides on the Pleasant Hill trail. I went on a ride here a few days ago and the overgroth had been sprayed and pushed back in a bunch of places. The trail flowed well and there are some great downhills and fun burms built into fast parts of the trail. There is some sandy spots that could be easily fixed. One of the most fun trails ive ridden lately. Its only 15 minutes out of Auburn and much more fast paced and fun than Chewacla Trails. Not to mention no parking fees.

Review: Fast flowy singletrack. Great downhill and some jumps if that's your thing. First mile or so is an uphill jeep road climb. Very beginner friendly and just a fun trail.

Review: If you like a fast 1+ mile down hill with a tough climb(s) and expert jumps then this is the trail for you in the Auburn Area. There is nothing really to complain about except for sand in a couple spots which is fixable. This place has the potential to be an epic trail and could be one of the best trails in Alabama with a little work. Overall it is a great XC trail with lots of speed.

Review: Just rode this trail this weekend. Overall it was pretty fun. A few roots, but pretty smooth for Alabama. There are a few jumps for advanced riders, but they are alternate routes and are avoidable if you (like me) aren't comfortable with them. About 3/4 of the first half is uphill, which gets a little tiring, but the downhill there is great. On the way back, there isn't much climbing at all and you can ride pretty fast. The scenery is great in Tuskegee National Forest, so thats a plus. Not my favorite trail in the area, but definitely a fun trail.

Review: Fun little trail. Varied terrain with a few roots, gravel service roads, some hard pack, and some sand. Overall a fun trail for beginners and a good trail for advance riders to train on getting faster.

Review: The configuration says "other", but it is an "in and out" type This trail is a great trail for experienced newbies. There are some roots to roll over, but nothing to serious. There aren't very many switchbacks or fast tight turns. It is a very good paced trail. Once you hit the the three mile point on the way in its all smooth sailing. It is amazingly fast but not hard at all. With some of the turns banked now there is no need for the brake at all once here, worth doing over and over. Ther are also some great places to make use of for jumps and stunts (nice place to hit up some tailwhips). There is some sandy spots to watch for and during the summer some extreme overgrowth (kudzu), but still managable.* Review edited 8/9/2009

Similar Trail: West Point, but longer of a ride and more grueling.
