  • Alum Creek Mountain Bike Trails

Rides begin at Alum Creek Mountain Bike Trail Phase II (West side of Africa Rd just North of Cheshire Rd). Each loop of the course is approximately 5.5 miles.  Meet in the parking lot at 5:30 for a 5:45 roll out - the course entrance is just across Africa Rd from the parking lot.  We will typically do 2 or more loops.  As available daylight dwindles, lights are required.  Recommended set up is a bar mount like as well as a helmet mount (your front tire is not always pointed where you need to be looking!  Trust me, I learned the hard way).  All riders welcome. Weather permitting - as the trail is maintained by COMBO, any amount of rain would bring cancellation for rider safety as well as trail preservation.

TRAIL DESCRIPTION

Alum Creek Phase 2 (P2) has quickly become the most heavily ridden trail in Central Ohio. Phase 2 was originally designed for more advanced riders and features some relatively narrow bridges ("skinnies"). As a newer trail than P1, it tends to flow a little better & not have quite as many exposed roots.  Some technical sections are optional, but newer riders should be prepared for challenges including numerous bridges and logovers.

P2 is home to a few longer bridges, a banked wall turn & a signature section of elevated trail.  At ~5.5 miles, it's ridden as one continuous loop and is a shared trail with the occasional hiker or trail runner.


See you on the trail!
