Summary:
Very fun trail, ingenious design. They have done amazing things with this small plot of land, lots of switchbacks but it doesn't feel repetitive, lots of fun downhills even though there isn't much elevation, plenty of shortcuts but you can still find your way.

All of the trails are built sustainably with good bench cuts and the downhills are quite long (uncommon characteristics this far south). There is also a fun switchback climb with some rocky parts. Otherwise the climbing is pretty easy, but somehow you seem to go downhill more than up. There are a lot of users, so trail tread is very smooth and hardpacked, plenty of good corners to rail.

Recommended Route:
race route, there are some arrows to follow I think.

Summary:
Dude & Dudetts, this trail rocks. Something for everyone. It's all packed singletrack. The TCMBA works these trails. Fast flat areas, good climbs, some techy stuff with the limestone rocks. Even a shallow cave to see on the ride. If you are in this part of Mississippi, it's a must ride.

Recommended Route:
The whole thing, forwards and backwards.

Summary:
Ground was broken on this trail in 2006 and improvements have been made every year since and are ongoing. Currently just over 8 miles of trail with plans to get it up to 9 this winter. Switchbacks? Check. Rock gardens? Check. Log piles? Check. Climbing? Check. Technical singletrack? Dadgum right. We make the most of our 80 acres.

Recommended Route:
Follow the arrows to ride the race loop or just get lost exploring...you're never more than 10min. from the car.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Nox in Lousiville - over 30 miles of Epic trailriding.
Clear Creek in Oxford - a roller coaster.

Summary:
TCMBA, affiliated with IMBA, started building this trail system in 2006 and has 5 miles of trails constructed and hardened. We are using green, blue and black levels for the trails. The elavation changes make for some tough climbing and an 8 mile ride gives you 2K ft. of climbing. The green and blue trails are easy if you are new and fun if you are experienced. Beautiful mature hardwoods surround you, and the land has rock formations and a rock -stone overlook with a naturally terraced switchback. We hope to get 8 miles on the land, and expect it to become a great trail system. Maps are available at the trailhead, and day passes are available at the bike shops Indian Cycle and The Bike Rack. Otherwise, annual membership is required.

Recommended Route:
Ride it all until your legs give out. The northern perimeter has the climbs and the log-cedar bridge for a skill drill. The southern half has the green trails and is basically flat.
