This 100% singletrack trail system starts with prime hardwood forest riding on the north end, but transitions into beautiful pine forest riding towards the sourthern reaches of the property. Highlights include a desert-like slickrock section and a rock bluff overlook. The gravel/paved Ironworks Bike Path runs near the western side of the trail, and crosses near the southernmost point. The trail now includes a downhill flow trail constructed with the assistance of Trek Bicycles.
None at trailhead. Plenty in St. James.
About the Park
