The mother of all rock gardens, this trail first goes through ridable sand pits, then out onto a man-made jetty that ends at the Fairport lighthouse. Technical riding skills a must, as this trail is basically jumping from rock to rock.

The breakwall requires some serious concentration. It is made up of huge stone blocks. It is wide, but uneven, and not level, so the line may be very narrow. Don't fall off (or in).
Your best bet is a trials bike... something without any derailleurs to destroy. You would be hard-pressed to make it all the way to the light house without a dab, unless you've got some MAD trials skilz. I couldn't even attempt it if it was wet. But it is a very novel ride. I spared my derailleur, but I dropped my front wheel in a crevace and scratched my fork from axle to crown. Try it if you like trials-style riding.

Recommended Route:
Ride bike through sand, ride up onto rocks, go until you fall off. The trail ends when you can't go anymore.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Head downtown to Ray's Indoor MTB Park.
