Family Friendly This is a perfect trail for kids to have their first mountain bike experience. The level trail surface, limited obstacles and close proximity to the pump track make for a great outing.

Description

This easygoing trail circles the outer edges of Gunlock Park and overlooks a portion of the Ohio River at the back of the loop. The trail is perfect for a first-time trail rider or ideal for a casual walk.

Marietta's paved pump track is also located at Gunlock Park and provides added entertainment for riders of all abilities.

To access the park, use the main Lowe's entrance off of SR 7 and drive around the left side of the building. Gunlock Park is located directly behind the shopping center. Park along the curb to avoid obstructing truck traffic in the area.

A progression of difficulty across the different jump lines. The paved pump track seen in the background of the picture is a great way to get warmed up before you send it on the jumps!
