Trail infrastructure include the trailhead kiosk, six bridges to cross over wet areas, trail posts and blazes.

Trail Difficulty Rating:
The trails were designed following IMBA guidelines for constructing sustainable trails for Easy-Beginner mountain bike riders. This is a great local trail resource to introduce new riders including youth to the sport. All trail bridges are 42 inches wide. Trails are a mix of double-track and new single-track.

Trail Descriptions:
Gingercake .9mi – Orange Blaze. This is a flat ride along the Gingercake Creek. The single track is mostly sand covered from frequent flood deposits, so is usually ridable 24 hours after heavy rainfall. The upper loop includes a small water fall view.

Homestead .2mi - White Blaze. This is a flat ride from the end of the main parking lot past the old farm house site. Dual track.

Meadow .1mi - Orange Blaze. This is a short downhill trail connecting Homestead, Whitewater, Wild Wood and Muscadine.

Muscadine 1.7mi - Grape Blaze. This is a scenic extended loop trail that crosses and climbs the Ridge twice. This ride mixes flat flood plain dual track with single track climbing around the South end of the Ridge from the Whitewater Creek to the Gingercake Creek and over the Ridge. The Ridge has a 90 foot elevation from the flood plain that will help you get your heart rate up.

Muscogee .6mi - Red Blaze. This is a roller coaster style single track that rides great both ways. Sharp drop with a switch back at the North end from the parking lot.

Whitewater .4mi – White Blaze. This is a flat ride with two entrances at the North end. Dual track with several trail bridges over flooding areas.
