Mountain Biking Shady Bend Trail

The trail will follow the South Fork Solomon River winding back and forth. You will hit some sandy spots and lots of small dips and humps. The trail is not well used and still soft but is a fun ride.

    Rode the trail on 3/4/20, the trail was dry and in great shape. Some sections were soft however definitely great riding. Mostly flat with lots of tight turns around trees and some dips. Outside loop on the south side is alongside of the river and has some nice scenery. Great trail for beginners and intermediate riders. Fun riding definitely worth checking out.

    This trail has great potential. It's still in a pristine state. A little raw and soft due to lack of use. Lots of deer tracks. Very well groomed. This trail is a ways out there but needs some heavy traffic to help establish a good base for a solid trail. Lots of twisting and turning, and dips and small humps, narrow tree passages and light technical challenges to keep you on your toes. This trail needs some trail markers to keep you on the right track so you don't do like I did and miss out on some of the trail. She's pretty flat for the most part so it would be great for all the beginners to test your skills. Had a fun day exploring this one and hope this helps!
