Trail Description
About this trail
Trail starts with some ups and downs with one steep drop. Then it climbs a dirt road before it goes into the woods for several miles of twisty singletrack. There are some open areas with a good grassy climb. This is a new trail and more singletrack will be added in the near future.

Review: Glad I checked it out! A little bit of everything here, nice flow and a good workout too. I just kept finding more trails that went on forever and yes, there are some roots, but that's mountain biking!

Review: This is a great trail found on the west side of Gainesville. It is a fairly easy trail with some good intermediate challenges thrown in. The advanced section at the beginning will challenge some riders, though is easily bypassed if needed. The trail runs around 5 miles, with a jump track in the middle. This trail can get overgrown in the summer, as it doesn't get the maintenance as often. There are a group of dedicated riders that do a great job in keeping the trail running. All in all, this is a great local trail to enjoy.

Review: This place has a little bit of everything. I could easily ride this place everyday. Nice little climbs for some downhill fun in a few sections!

Review: Trail has recently been cleared for the most part after Irma went through, the trails across the fields were recently mowed. I have been seeing more vehicles in the parking lot and it looks like the trail is getting used more.

Review: Rode Oct. 21, 2017 my annual trip to Gainesville and The Rock trail. Some huge trees down from hurricane Irma in the drop area which is not rideable at this time. The main trail is open and rideable with a few detours and lots of twigs and debris. This trail can be great but needs a lot of TLC and a lot more wheels riding it. Yes it's rooty, but stlll a fun ride. Lets not keep this a secret. It's a shame to let this trail get so neglected.

Review: Rode this trail twice while in town visiting friends. It's a nice single track through a wooded area that has a few sections that bring out through a field to connect back to the woods. Not a lot of difficult sections, but a fair amount of roots in some areas. This 5 mile loop was a grest way to spend an hour. If you're in Gainesville, definitely check it out.
