Munny Sokol Park

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 26

Munny Sokol is a well-maintained, winding single track through the woods on the outskirts of Tuscaloosa. It's not very technical but has a few rough spots with roots and downed logs. With nice roller-coaster effects and no big climbs or long downhills, this is a fun trail that can be ridden in it's entirety in 45 minutes to an hour by anyone short of the late Chris Farley. Multiple loops are fun, and it should be ridden with someone who knows the loop at first because it is laid out like a golf course with several criss-crosses.

Summary:
Excellent Singletrack with lots of twist and turns. Until you learn the course and routes it can get confusing. Dont be surprised to look over and 20 feet away you see another part of the trail!!! Trail Map at parking lot. Not many long downhills or up hills, but the ones there will give you a quick workout!

Recommended Route:
Pick one!!!!!!!!!!!! You can ride these trails in many different combo's. We have been starting counter clockwise for the first mile or two and then cut across the field and ride clockwise for the last 8 or so miles!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lake Lurleen and Oak Mountain.

Summary:
Whoa!!! What happened out here? There has been a lot of work done on this trail(s). About 2-3 years ago there was only about 8 miles or something. Now, there has got to be somewhere in the area of 10-12, maybe. A new section has opened up on what I was told was off limits to MTBers at one point (the section over the creek). Plus, there are at least 5 more new loops (Death by Concrete, Troll, 5 Bridges, and a couple of loops that I can't remember the name of). All of it is still tight and twisty but there is plenty of elevation change for such a compact trail. Granted the elevation change is not like the extended climbs and descents of something like Lake Lurleen or Oak Mountain. Basically, if you haven't ridden out here in a while, go ride it. There is a lot more to the trail now and worth an afternoon ride, at least.

Recommended Route:
There are too many routes for me to explain here. The best thing is to ride with someone who has been out there and I hear that there is a group ride on Mondays at 5pm.

Summary:
Here's a review from a total MTB n00b. I have been cutting my teeth here, and I have been having fun and I am getting better and better each time. It's true the signage isn't great, and some of the best trails aren't even marked. The most difficult marked trail is called "Death by Concrete" and is marked with one black diamond. It also has LOTS of poison ivy and oak along the trail, it moves through entire patches of PI in places.

"Creek", "Five Bridges" and "Troll" are also some of the highlights.

You won't get lost going out alone, but going with a local is helpful stringing a complete loop.

If you ride it often, please be a pal and carry a small folding saw and a some snips on occasion and do a little clipping and cutting.

I don't know if you should take my ratings too seriously, like I said before I am a n00b, but it is a great place to learn. Plus, it is 10 minutes from my house.

Recommended Route:
Ride any trail you can find, you will eventually get dumped out back onto the main trail. Some of the best trails aren't marked, and aren't heavily ridden. Find a local to take you to "Antique Creek".

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lake Lurleen

Summary:
Before reading, understand my point of view comes from a long history of downhilling, freeriding, and racing big mountains. Having said that, suprisingly, I felt that the trail was a decent ride. I rode alone and didn't have too much trouble finding my way around the trail my first time. I was riding a single speed and had no problems with any of the climbs. There are a few sections one can make more interesting by enabling hops, endos, or manuals. There is also a wide path that cuts through what seems to be the center of the trail which is good if you are finding yourself lost. All in all, I would reccomend the trail to any rider of any level, but I would want to warn advanced riders they may become bored. For anyone with big rigs or dj'ers, I will most likely be building some stunts and possibly cut a very fast, technical run into the main hillside of the woods.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There is a big loop at the lake... I haven't ridden it yet, but I expect nothing special.

Summary:
11-13-04 A small section of the trail has been lost due to some type of clearing for a road or pipeline. Other than that, still a fun & great trail to ride.
