Mountain Biking Rouge Park

Starting at the trailhead, the trail proceeds clockwise: heading north parallel to Outer Drive with some switchbacks. Near the corner where Outer Drive crosses over Joy Rd, the trail swoops down and heads east towards the river. It exits the forest onto the sidewalk on Joy Rd. Take Joy Rd. east on the bridge over the river, and then jump back into the woods. The trail winds through the forest some more before briefly jumping out into some open space across from the aero-modelers' field. The trail then winds south following the ridgeline before exiting onto the sidewalk where Spinoza meets Tireman. Follow the sidewalk west on Tireman and jump back into the trail after crossing the bridge over the river. Finish the loop and exit back to trailhead.

    This trail is extremely overgrown and is potentially dangerous to ride. Lots of thorn bushes grown over the trail and some sections where the trail is seriously eroded. Really not enjoyable at all.

    Very dangerous area, don't be surprised if you get robbed or your car gets broken into.
