Somewhat tight and technical in areas. Fun ridden in both directions, if ridden counter clockwise there is less climbing but if ridden clockwise there are a few decent flowing downhill sections. A few log rides mixed in near the trailhead with more fun stuff in the works throughout the trail.

Summary:
Nice trail. It is currently about 5.5 miles long with a surprising amount of elevation change for this area. There are some tight twisty parts and some nice flowy parts, but nothing I'd consider very technical. The trails are very well maintained and drain well after a rain. There is a nice vista view of Arkabutla Lake along the trail. If you are in the area, give them a shot.

Recommended Route:
I prefer to take a left at the trail head (CCW) but it is good the other way too.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Clear Creek, Stanky, Herb Parsons, Wolf River Trails.

Summary:
Trail is in great shape. It has been well maintained. It drains well after all the rains we have been having, but the trail crew asks us to wait 24 hours before riding.

I ride it counter clockwise starting at the bathrooms adjacent to the playground. It starts with tight slow corners, but it opens up after you cross the road for the first time.

The whole loop is about 5 miles. There are short sections off the main trail that add whoop de doos. There are a few short technical features to play on, too.

Recommended Route:
CCW starting at the bathrooms adjacent to the playground.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Clear Creek at Sardis Lake

Summary:
I have just moved to the area and this trail was the first one I have ridden since moving here in January. The trail was short but pretty fast and flowy. I'm used to trails that are a little more technical but I really enjoyed the tight twists and turns this trail offers. The Mid-South Trail Association has done a great job maintaining the trail as well as developing man-made features to spice things up if you so so desire. I'm looking forward to bringing the whole family out there many times in the future!

Recommended Route:
I have only ridden the trails ccw and it has been a blast.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stanky Creek, Shelby Farms, and Clear Creek.

Summary:
Quite a bit of elevation changes and all the switchbacks you could ever wish for but it does have a very nice flow to it. The trail is very well maintained and drains very well in the winter, rideable when most other local trails are a wet wasteland.

Recommended Route:
Ride at least two laps, one time each direction.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Herb Parsons, Stanky Creek, Harvester Park (Lakeland)
