Bike Trails Grand Opening!

Friday, June 16, 2017 - 4:31pm

 

Join us on Saturday, May 20th at 10am at the start of the Bear Swamp Trail for the grand opening ceremony of the Medoc Mountain Bike Trails! The mountain bike trails start on the Bear Swamp Trail and feature two loops. 

The Saponi Loop, at 3.3 miles, is moderately rated and ties in with existing hiking trails while the Pyrite Loop, at 5.3 miles, is an entirely new trail that includes several natural rock and tree obstacles and is rated as a difficult trail. 

 

Mountain bike trails are blazed with hexagons, so if the trail is not marked with a hexagon, it is not approved for bike use. Mountain bike trails are open to hikers, but they are required to hike in the opposite direction that cyclists ride.
