Mountain Biking Trail B

****   Add a review
#48 of 127 mountain bike trails in Illinois
#4,736 in the world

Trail B ranges anywhere from easy to difficult depending how it is ridden. There are a couple of long and steep climbs (for Illinois) on the east side of this loop. If this trail is ridden as an out and back to these climbs, then this trail can be considered beginner/intermediate. Ridden as a complete loop, this trail deserves an intermediate/difficult rating.

    Watch the first decent it is rutted out really bad and needs maintained or rerouted.

    The "B" loop was in great shape today, dry, 80-90% leaf-free so excellent for hiking. This loop appears to be near 3.9 miles vs the published 3.0 miles.

    Trail B takes you across the dam and has the most climbing (and descending) of all the trails at Fay. There is a short section that takes you out to the bank of the lake, but the rest of the trail is mostly out in the woods. It's a blast to ride, and there's something for everyone on this trail.
