Trail Description
About this trail
Sorry for delay in revising the trail description which has not been accurate for quite some time.
Thanks to the work of Northeast Miss. Cycling Club and North Miss. Trail Alliance the trails at Trace State Park have been expanded and are now extremely well maintained and are easy to follow. Trail maps are posted at each trailhead.
There are three distinct bicycle trails Nester, Baker, and Moroney with a total of at least 15 miles.
Nester is located just inside the park entrance and forms a 4-5 mile loop to the dam and back.
Baker is adjacent to the old hiking trail and incorporates some of the hiking trail and is approximately five miles.
Moroney is adjacent to the REAR boat ramp and was formerly called the boat ramp trail. The current configuration of Moroney (a bit different from the posted map) is probably six miles.
All the trails are fast and fun and would be considered easy to moderate. The easiest way to locate the trails is to begin with Nester (turn left upon entering the park and trailhead will be on your left) and refer to the map posted at the trailhead which shows all three trails.

Review: 3 great trail loops that are meticulously maintained by the local cycling group. Leaves cleared often!! Nester trail is to your left as soon and you enter the park great trail with not a lot of climbs. Baker and Boat Ramp trails are deeper in the park. Once you enter the park turn right and take the 2nd left. Baker is on the left just past the house. Boat ramp is on the road to the right just before the house, follow road to large parking area can't miss it! Both trails are very fun, Baker has some fast down hill and some good climbs.

Review: I rode the boat ramp trail Saturday and it's in excellent shape. It's still leaf covered. Lots of rolling hills. Good down hills with climbs to match. I posted a pic of the trail route.

Review: Since the tornado of April 2014 that wiped out Elvis Presley State Park (Burning Sunshine), the biking community has really worked on the trails at Trace State Park. The trails are in great shape! Existing trails have been cleared, new trails have been added and all are well-marked now. There's a range of trails for all riders beginner to advanced. The beginner trails starts at the front gate. The park entrance office has a map of some but not all of the trails. We are currently working on a map for all of the trails.

Review: Rode the MTB trail only. The loop I rode was approx. 5 miles but have no clue how much trail is there to be had. Trail is not marked very well and takes off in multiple directions. Not a lot of flow, a lot of back and forth and up and down. No major hill climbs. Best thing do is follow the orange ribbons and take a gps. Mark your vehicle and it will help give you a since of direction. Several creek crossings, some bridged some not. Mostly single track with some jeep roads.

Review: I used to live in Pontotoc and have been to Trace State Park a couple of times. Sadly only for riding dirtbikes. I walked the bike trail and from what I remember it was fairly decent. Its not to hilly, but hilly enough to have fun. The other trails though, are pretty fun. Some sandy parts but for the most part pretty exciting on the dirtbike trails. If your ever in Pontotoc, Trace State Park is definitely worth checking out.
