Trail Description
About this trail
Mostly single track loop with a few short gravel or paved sections. Not overly technical but can get tight in spots. Fun ride nonetheless and a good spot to take beginners.

Review: As a beginner mountain biker I really enjoyed this trail. This is a very close trail for me, just wish I would have discovered my new found love for biking sooner. I will be sure to go back to the gap!

Review: Fun loop. Couple of sections with lots of rocks. Some roots. But mostly flowing single track. You can ride either direction and there's a moderate amount of foot traffic as well...most of the time you have good line of sight but there's a few spots you have to becareful. The trails are not particularly well maintained...or maintained at all from what I can tell. There's a few sections that have been blocked all summer by fallen trees that you have to ride/walk around. So not sure who takes care of the trails but they aren't doing a very good job of it. Otherwise...nice place to get in a few laps. Summertime you can cool off in the lake. There's three different beach areas.

Review: As others have mentioned, there are lots of roots. There isn't anything particularly technical about the trail, but it is fun. I travel through the area for work and will stop in again for rides.

Review: Fun loop around Lake Habeeb to get your blood pumping. Lots of roots and rocks in spots to make it a little more technical than you'd expect.

Review: Fun Trial. Head up the mountain for more technical riding. Home of the 9 Hrs of Cranky Monkey.

Review: There was some ok sections of the loop but most of it is not much more fun than riding a fire road. Lots of people use the trail for fishing and walking so it never seemed safe ride at a faster pace.

Review: Rode the race course here and it was a blast. Old school trails that are rocky, fast, straight up and straight down. No dabs and good views.

Review: Tried for the first time on June 15th (mid-week). What a wonderful surprise. Nice variety and a total blast! One of the best trails east of Mississippi. Really need to go mid-week. With blind turns can't imagine what would ensue with weekend hikers. Put it on the list!

Review: Rode this trail last weekend with my wife and six year old on a tag along. Good trail to ride early in the morning before it gets crowded. Beach close by to cool off after the ride. Well worth the trip.
