“As we run through life, we step into many moments, both good and bad, but as long as we don’t change our shoes too much, there is nothing we can’t handle. Currently, I am stepping in mud, and when I get out of the mud, it will leave a trace on everything else I step on. This can be a good thing as long as I am positive in the mud, so that the trail I later leave is a good one. The mud may stain my shoe, but it will not change the brand or the foot inside, only build up its character.”
*****All middle school students MUST be accompanied by and stay with a MS MTB coach or designated adult.
Starting at the Eagleview Town Center, this ride travels on ~2-miles of paved roads to and from the Dorlan Mills Road parking entrance to Marsh Creek State Park. Once on park property, mountain bikers will navigate up to ~12-miles of marked, unpaved, wooded multi-use trails. Two turnarounds will be marked for those participants who don’t wish to ride the full ~16-mile course. The course is primarily single-track trails with the off-road technical challenges that mountain bikers love!
Route Map: Coming Soon! Finishing touches being made to exact route.

The course starts with a ~4-mile loop of the park’s yellow trail at the south end of the lake ending at the dam. From here, those wishing to only ride 8 miles can head down and out the access road to start the road climb back to the town center.
Otherwise, the course continues from the dam along the park’s ~2-mile white trail to the west boat launch. Those choosing to only ride 12-miles will return along the white trail back to the dam, then down and out the access road. A ~1-mile bonus loop on the right, before exiting the park, will conclude the trail ride before starting the road climb back to the town center.
The full course continues from the west boat launch with a ~4-mile loop of the park’s blue/green trails. Once back to the west boat launch, riders will return along the white trail back to the dam and then down and out the access road. The ~1-mile bonus loop on the right, before exiting the park, will conclude the trail ride before starting the road climb back to the town center.
