Description

This is a fast and flowing trail with no major obstacles. It's very easy to navigate. Once you leave the OSCA Rd. parking lot, there is a single trail. You'll pass a marsh pond on your left filled with birds and a heavily rooted area.

Just past this, the trail can split left for a tougher section or stay right. Going left, you'll encounter a fun pumpy section known as the Priest Landing Alternate Route. After some weaving, you'll reach the main trail again. As the trail unfolds, stay right and hug the marsh. It will twist and turn into the forest and out to the edge of the water, with multiple bridge crossings.

When you get about two-thirds of the way back, you'll come to the spaghetti bowl. There are a host of easy pumps, drops, jumps, and other features to challenge riders. After reaching the end of the trail, you loop around and take the inner trail through the pine forest. This is more chill than the marsh side, but does contain a great rollercoaster feature, as well as a few twist and turns here and there.

There are also several little off-chutes/connectors to switch between the inner forest trail and the marsh trail, for those that want to repeat certain sections, or bypass a potentially downed tree.

Second trip. If you start at the end of OCRA Rd., make sure to stay right or you'll end up going up the return trail. Poorly marked but good fun! 7.5mi — 1h 21m
