Races are run during the year, so you can follow the race course, which was over 6 miles. You could always ride the trail backwards for variety. There were about 6 uphills, 4 of them are doable, the other 2 are tough. Fast single-track, not too technical, no mud. Worth the trip from Columbus a couple times a year. www.mohican.net is the race website for these trails.

Summary:
this is an excellent trail. moslty singletrack. you will have to work on the uphills. there is an uphill for every downhill but, not the other way around. the downhill is fairly technical. if you dont stay back on your saddle and find a good groove to follow you will go over your handlebars. this is the best trail i have rode in ohio. that is if you want to spend your entire ride busting your balls up then going downhill over and over again. better overall trail than vultures knob for this type of riding. tooo bad its closed.

Reviewed by: David Kimsey , from Indianapolis, IN

Summary:
This a great trail. I drove 4 hours from Indianapolis and was not disappointed. I race about every weekend of the summer and this a defiantly a place to check out. The course starts out with a wide opening blanket of pine needles. Then has some sharp turns. There is a fast jump where you can kick it out. There are some good up hills and fast long down hills. The trail also has some new sections that have been cut. Definitely a place to ride. My friend and I are experienced riders, but there is nothing here that an intermediate to a beginner should be afraid of.

Recommended Route:
I raced this course in July 2000

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Southern OH. Nellsonville-Door Run Loop--Nellsonville- Hocking Collage Didi Mau. I have race both these and they are great. I traval there at leaset 3 times a summer to ride and race

Reviewed by: Cajun , from Dublin, OH

Summary:
I thought the course was pretty fast, with not a lot of technical things. Just smooth, fast single-track. There were 2 or 3 downhills that you came up on with some speed so be ready. 2 of those downhills had sharp 90 degree turns at the bottom so you have to keep looking ahead if you have never ridden here.
2 uphills that are very hard to get up without walking - good luck. The others are tough, but doable.

Recommended Route:
I followed the guy in front of me from the Spokejunkies. I guess we just went the race course.
