Piney Creek Fall Creek Falls State Park

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

1st third of trail is rocky and has a series of fairly long climbs and fast-fun descents. Bring an extra tube. Switches to hardpacked old logging roads at the private group camp swimming hole. Good place to cool-off although signs say for use by campers only. We didn't see anybody. The second section is hilly but not as strenuos as first section. Trail continues onto Timber Company land.

Summary:
Ive ridden this trail a couple times and it is a really fun trail... the beginning is fast and doesnt have any logs or anything on it... at the swimming hole when it changes its all uphill and well signed... but there is a fork in the road that if u take to the right u stay on the trail, but if u go left u end up 20 miles away from the park... overall a nice trail

Recommended Route:
its just an out and back

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
Tryed to ride this trail, but it has not been maintained or rode very often. Has the potential to be a great trail. Too many trees down. You will ride 50 yards and stop to contort your bike over and thru trees and limbs. Not to mention tick heaven.

Summary:
Tornado damage has clogged this trail with heavy timber. Park is currently working on the red tape necessary to get commercial loggers to clear it out.

Recommended Route:
Trail is closed at this time. I haven't ridden it yet.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The park also offers the Upper Loop trail--all singletrack (with some bridges out right now) and the Chinquapin Ridge Trail. Main office of park has maps and friendly staff to get you onto the trails. The Upper Loop trail will be fixed up this Spring, but requires some creative routing or fording at the present. Will update as possible. These are my new "home trails"--only 50 miles away.

Summary:
The first couple of miles are the toughest. The trail goes straight up and over a ridge and is rocky. Looks like trail was cut by small bulldozer or bobcat, not quite singletrack, not quite doubletrack. Last few miles are an old forest road which is rolling. This road ends at the Gulf and during the winter it has really nice views. If you only want to ride the forest road, park on road to group camp, and ride around edge of camp.

Recommended Route:
Out and back trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Upper Loop at FCF for 14.5 miles of kickin singletrack, or Chinquapen ridge for more forest road.
