Futago Yama (ghost town)

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

tight single track winding turns lots of roots and slick rocks, last mile is downhill singletrack with lots of turns , all trails are marked in english and jappanese, follow signs to rt16 taura and will lead you to ghost town between yokosuka and taura. intermediate depending on how fast you ride, if you like to crank up the speed it becomes toward the crazy level

Summary:
This is a great trail with some fast downhill singletrack and some technical sections. There are quite a few different trails, so it's worth exploring the area to find them all.

Recommended Route:
Start at Taura recreational park. Climb to the top of the mountain on the fire road. Then come back down the mountain, and you will see a turn off to your right. Follow this trail and explore the area. There are quite a few different ways to ride this trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ogusuyama, Duck pond, Tenen trail.

Summary:
this trail is fun, if you go left at the first T it goes on and on with a lot of up and down hill, also beautiful scenery. if you go right, it is all downhill. best to go early spring because it is dry and not too overgrown with bushes.

Recommended Route:
ken's route is perfect! the only thing is the park is kind of uphill and you can't really see it too well. you will notice some stairs near the sidewalk and a small road with a motor vehicle-type block across it.

Summary:
I rode this once last year - ride was nice but when we got to the ghost town, we had to push our way (while pulling our bikes behind us) through 8-foot reeds. We made some wasps that were in there angry though - I ended up with two painful stings that took a month to fully heal.
