Average Rating:    (3.61 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 18

So far about 4 miles of technical fast singletrack and another 2-3 miles of fire road. Well built, good drainage, tight corners, log crossings, slick rock, something for everyone. More trail is being built so total will be around 8 miles. A badly needed trail in the B'ham area to take some of the strain off Oak Mountain. Being built by BUMP - i.e. built by bikers for bikers and not inherited from hikers.

Summary:
Being new to the mounain biking world (started in January),I find this trail pretty challenging.The whole thing is apx 4.5 miles long,with a little bit of everything.I start from the softball field and begin my journey on a series of switchbacks when at the top you will find my favorite section of the whole trail.A nice tight ,twisty ,fast section of downhill with big flat rocks,small rocks,& roots.After this it is made up of small wooden bridges,single track,more rocky areas and when you cross the road the 2nd time you will find what I have nicknamed "the monster".The monster is another switchback climb that is much steeper than the 1st.Once you conquer this it is just a nice trail ride with moderate climbs and short fast sections of trail. Complete loop takes 30-45 minutes

Recommended Route:
clockwise

Summary:
Road this trail for the first time a week ago. Enjoyed it so much that I went back the next day. I live right near Oak Mountain so I go there most of the time but this trail was a very nice change. It is more technical than Oak Mountain (excluding Blook Rock). It will be really nice when it is longer. I wish there was more space to build trails so that you felt like you were 'travelling further' like you do at Oak Mountain. A lot of switchbacks but you don't really see the other trails and during summer you won't see the other trails at all.

Everyone should give it a try. A really great to the often busy Oak Mountain Trail system.

Recommended Route:
N/A

Summary:
Excellent job thus far on the technical aspects of the trail. Needs to be a bit longer. Our group did multiple laps though as it is not that tough aerobically...

Recommended alternative to Oak Mountain and an easy track to do if you're limited on time as you cross the road multiple times so you can go back to the parking lot easily of you need to.

Recommended Route:
Clockwise

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Oak Mountain, Lake Lurleen and Hurricane Creek

Summary:
Just wanted to spread the word about the new extension at Trussville. BUMP has added about 1 mile of singletrack including very technical portion right behind the tennis courts.

Summary:
a little bit of everything!! switchbacks, rocks, short climbs, and tight singletrack. a little on the short side of things but the best night riding in town.

Recommended Route:
do a loop clock wise then turn around and trace your steps.
