Description

Emerging from Spring Park via a cool tunnel, you enter the latest addition to this group of trails, a network of several old school “handmade” trails. I recommend climbing up the trail to your right on Apple Dumplin to ride counterclockwise, making sure you take the high ground when given an option to catch a couple of fun features. Then return, riding Black Apple Creek Trail, and finish with a challenging rocky ledge-y scramble on Apple Turnover.
