Review: Another awesome trail! Technical and not too hilly. Only complaint was some of the weeds were overgrown and thorny - cut up the hands a bit. Not too much climbing. Don't forget to stop by at Dark Horse after for some awesome food and suds!

Review: The Singletracks directions to trailhead take you to the wrong spot, and the trail map includes stuff that was just riding around. The meat of this ~5 mile trail starts at 42.2605N Latitude and -84.9492 Longitude. There is a faded white sign and a high tension electrical tower. The other reviews are not wrong, this is a fun technical trail. Definitely not for the beginner. Not a lot of total elevation change but a ton of short burst climbs and descents. Lots of blind curves too when the weeds are up. Very cool and very different from other trails in the area.

Review: This trail is unlike any other trail in the area. The trail starts out about 100 ft. in with a concrete slab feature, and is incredibly tight and twisty in spots. There are some short, but very steep sections, and a lot of rocks and roots. It is all completely ride-able and fun on both my rigid xc bike and my full suspension trail bike. A ton of fun.

Review: Just rode The Dump, Its was exciting and fun. This not a trail for the beginner, there where parts of the trail that we really had to question why we are out here... The challenge was worth the effort. The trail has lots of concrete and stones if you crash it will hurt. When they say advanced the guys weren't wrong.

Review: My first time here today. It was a little wet which made it very slippery over all the rocks. The dump has a lot of switchbacks with short hilly sections made up of what seems like large trenches. It was very technical, and I wouldn't advise a new rider attempt this trail. It runs next to the river in Marshall, just down from the Dark Horse Brewing. Very rocky, lots of tree roots, lots of turns, low hanging branches and vines. There were small trees that had fallen and leaning abut face level, do you need to be on the lookout, or pay the price.

Review: The directions are wrong... Once you pass dark horse take a left at the blinking light. Go through the the stop light.. Left across the street from the graveyard... Follow the fence around and the trialnis close to the river with a sign that reads "the dump" faded. The trail was fun and very technicalðŸ'Œ

Review: Amazing! I just moved here from Chicago to be closer to family and have been hitting this constantly. Very technical! It kicked my butt for a bit. My last 30 minutes riding I flew over a blind spot and almost plowed into a flock of baby turkeys. The ride keeps you on your toes for sure.

Im planning on stopping by this week sometime again to maybe hit the poison ivy with some round up and prune some stuff out.

Idk who made this it but thank you!

Review: Rode The Dump this morning. It was pretty wet yet, a little slippery in places made for some interesting turns. I do not have much experience to compare this trail to but I greatly enjoyed it. Navigating the trail was simple, I believe I took on short cut by accident though. There were places I walked a couple drops and climbs. It clocked in at about 5 miles and took me about an hour averaging 5.5mph. Couple places could use some limbs/ vines cut back from overhead. I had it all to myself as well this morning although the bugs were pretty bad. Overall great ride look forward to doing it again!
