Edgewood Trail

No. of Reviews: 3

All single track. Original trail is well marked. Trail is best when dry. New addition to original loop is still rough but enjoyable. Great ride right in the middle of town. Mostly smooth single track with a few rocky areas and small challenges thrown in.

Summary:
I am from out of town and rode this trail this weekend and thought I'd offer an updated review since its been a while since anyone reviewed it. Its not a bad trail for one being in town and easily accessible. The problem is that its pretty overgrown in places. Its clear that the mtb'ers in the area probably frequent other trails. I think the advice below about avoiding it when damp is pretty wise. Anyway, its a fun trail for what it is. The switchbacks are well thought out and it has some fun ups and downs to it. Its a tight trail and fun to navigate. There's not really any open sections where you can get moving. Its fun, good exercise and really convenient, though. It just needs some more action to beat down some of the overgrowth.

Recommended Route:
Its pretty much a loop from the parking lot. Pick your direction, clockwise or counter.

Summary:
I just had a chance to try out this trail yesterday. It's not exactly the ultimate MTB trail, but it's a great place to get out for a quick ride right in town. Mostly smooth dirt, the primary challenges are the inclines. In other words, it's not too technical, but it's a good place for a quick workout. Mostof the trail is marked well enough, but I did get caught off guard a couple of times my first time around when I was riding in bright sun and had a little difficulty seeing where the trail when in the shadows ahead. One caveat. I'd avoid this trail if the dirt is more than even slightly damp. It's mostly soft dirt and thin grass in most places, winding across the side of the hill. It looks like you could tear the trail to pieces and set up conditions for some nasty erosion if you ride when it's wet. I'm only giving it 2 stars, but that's not to diss the trail. I just prefer more technical challenges. The folks in JC are still lucky to have this kind of trail so close at hand.
