North Harpers Creek

Average Rating:    (2 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

The first part of this trail is steep and technical and is kind of fun. Some pics of a tech-y section on hick hucksters site. After the top section, the novelty of slow technical riding wears off after the first 400 creek crossings and downed trees blocking the trail. The top may be fun, but the rest of this trail blows. Ride your bike for 15 to 45 seconds, get off cross creek or carry over tree, then repeat for 7 miles. DO NOT RIDE THIS TRAIL!! Probably a fun hike, good scenery, but terrible on a bike.

Summary:
This trail sucks for bikes! Great for backpacking and walking! If you want to ride bikes this trail is not for you. If however you enjoy "hike a bikes" then this is the trail for you. Don't get me wrong this trail sucks because you can't ride but only 20% or less of the entire thing, not because you have to pedal. I will pedal anything anywhere! Just not over big @$$ rocks and roots for 8 miles with no flow! THIS TRAIL BLOWS!

Recommended Route:
STAY HOME AND GET DRUNK INSTEAD!

any thing ain wilsons or the rest of the planet is better!

Summary:
Is this the North Haper creek trail in Wilsons creek? If so then then its not that bad of a trail. It is a beautiful cross country ride with several good climbs, technical moves and some fast descents. It also offers longer ways to ride raider camp or greentown. I really enjoy this trail

Recommended Route:
Out and back


Other recommended trails in the same area:
Greentown, raidercamp, headlys, and raspberry
