Trail Description
About this trail
There are three separate trail areas within the park. The largest trail area is mult-use for motorcycles, mtb, and horse use and probably contains at least 30 miles. There is an mtb only trail of about 10 miles, and an mtb/horse trail (which horse riders have never used) of about seven miles. There is a map of the multi-use trail available at front gate which identifies trails by number.
Bike only trail is seldom used and poorly marked except for a two mile beginner segment which travels beside lake.

None of the trails get heavy use and the multi-use trail has a huge variety of terrain and is a lot of fun for an experienced rider. You need to be willing to go out and experiment and learn the trails. You can use the map for location but finding a fun ride requires spending some time out there. Incredible trail system but best if you can ride with someone who knows the 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.
