Trail Description
About this trail
Phase 1 is 22 miles of 3 connecting loops that are mostly excellent single track. Most of the Phase 1 trails are quite technical. The White River Bluff Loop is 4.5 miles. Portions of the trail are quite technical, but the views of the White River and North Sylamore Creek Valley are worth the effort. Bald Sc***py Loop is 7.3 miles beginner to intermediate trails through Ozark Forest. Sc***py Mountain Loop is 12 miles of steep Ozark Mountain terrain. Beginners can ride most, but may need to push up/down steep switchbacks. Phase 2 has recently added another 16 miles of trail.

Q: R there any jumps, hard burms, or downhill? -Cmkline17

A: I haven't been in a few years but no, this isn't that type of trail. Sure, there are fast, rocky descents but no built up jumps or berms.

Review: I rode the majority of the Jacks Branch Loop from the bottom, and it was super tough going up. I'm thinking that his trail will probably be grown up in a few grassy places in the summer.

Review: Trials are getting in better shape. Still work to be done but the race crews have done a lot. If you need bike service while you are around I am local. I have been a bike mechanic for 10 years in a bike shop. I have all the tools from building bikes and doing brake work to truing wheels. Cell is 870-373-6001 if you need anything.

Review: Ugh! So much potential, but a huge let down. I should have followed previous reviews and stayed away. I made it about 3/4 mile down Bad Branch and had to turn around. Between the down trees and overgrowth that included razor sharp thorns I just could not fathom going another 11 miles. I spoke with a local at another trail and he explained that they just dont have enough bikers in the area to drive a strong volunteer force. They do use prisoners but that doesnt happen until late fall once most the leaves have fallen (makes it easier to spot an escapee). Its a beautiful piece of property that seems to be well signed, but until they keep up with the maintenance, stay away.

Review: This is a good trail with a LOT of miles, but many of those are very very rocky, so come prepared for some hiking. Not real well maintained, but with that many miles of trail in very rural area you can expect some of that in the spring. Also be warned to bring spare parts and tubes as its over an hour to the nearest shop (only Walmart is close) and you will blow tires. Some good views but I would guess there are better trails not so isolated.

Review: Great, great trail. Don't be fooled by the other ratings. These trails are TOUGH. Some parts very technical. Bring your climbing legs. Beautiful trail and very worth the drive from about anywhere.

Review: Scratched up peverely from the weeds and thorny bushes overgrowing the trail and I have poison ivy to boot. Seems like it would be a great trail in the winter and spring or if there was some trail maintenance.

Review: Blue trail, scrappy mtn loop still has fallen trees blocking parts of the trail. But as of 11/28/14 mostly clear. Leaves cover the trail leaving some parts hard to navigate. Likewise heavy equipment tracks made parts of the trail hard to follow. But still a great great trail.

Review: Trail work update: The Bad Branch (red) trail was cleaned and cleared by a professional trail crew last week. The Orange And Green trails have also been cleared in the past few weeks. Roughly 75 percent of the blue trail is clear. The yellow has not yet been worked on, and will probably not be 'till after the first of the year. Great things are happening at Syllamo to restore this amazing trail system.
