This is my local trail where I am learning to mountain bike. I am a rather timid beginner that only started mountain biking about four months ago. I ride this trail 2-3 times per month and am slowly honing my skills. Then a couple times per month I take my skills on the road to ride other trails in AL, FL, and GA. I personally enjoy riding this trail because it helps me to improve. There are short uphills and downhills, roots, sand (normally not deep), and turns that I can practice on without having to drive a super long distance. This is a nice trail for locals or someone passing through and it is well-maintained. It is a beginner trail so the more advanced riders can just pedal faster to get a great workout! There are no restrooms or changing rooms available, so you might want to plan accordingly. The city of Dothan, AL is nearby with lots of nice restaurants to enjoy after a ride (and Sunday beer sales! Yay!).
