New Guinea Ft Stewart - TRAIL

New Guinea Ft Stewart - Trail, Ft Stewart, Georgia

As I read in another review, it is a lot of mounds in one part (next to an irrigation ditch) You can get some speed here, but the other 1/2 of trail is more similar to BMX. After crossong a large ditch, you will find where someone recently started working(raking the path) on the trail. Lots of roots, trees, palmettos logs, and turns. The turnaround is near a very sandy tank trail. I found myself wishing my bike was smaller in parts. There were a few peripheral trails, none I have explored yet.

I was dissapointed but what should I expect- I just got here from Utah. The trail is a good effort but needs some help. Part of me was wondering if it is legal. The tell-tale signs of stacked brush blocking some parts of the trail were present. Anyone else reading this should e-mail me. I am going to start some trail repairs (fallen logs, etc...) and want to expand the trail to the West. Bottom line: What else is there to ride?

Customer Service

Same as others. I want to go through it and mark a clear direction of traffic, as it is now it doesn't make much sense.

The 3 mile loop has a little of everything. The mounds are BMX, cross the ditch and its curvy with lots of logs, dips, mounds, a couple droppoffs, and roots. It's basicly all single track and tricky in several places. Myself and a couple of friends have been working on this trail for the last couple of months and it continues to improve. We planning on adding another long loop this summer.
I give this trail a 5 because of it's ability to smoke me in one lap and it's location to me.
The person who should ride this trail likes the technical stuff, isn't afraid of pushing themselves or their bike, and isn't scared crashing every once in a while.
Feel free to email me if you need further directions or would like to come ride. krh1@excite.com

Go around the back of the elementary school and take the concrete walkway that leads off the basketball court. Go straight down the walkway and when you hit the asphalt cross the road and take a left on to another concrete walkway. Look for the trail on the right, you will be at the beginning of about 40 mounds. Ride the mounds, cross the sandy road and RIDE throught the ditch. Follow the raked trail till you come out by the fenced in area and cross the new concrete bridge. Look for the trail in the wood line straight ahead and take a right. Follow it around till you come back to the mounds.

the hills are good for bmx and mtn bikes good jumps, after the ditch it's mostly single track but has some places to pass if your quick the trail has some sand spots but not many there is one section that runs through an old swamp and has roots to negotiateit also has tight turns open turns slick areas hills to climb and go down some of it is tech but not badit is a good track for all

Customer Service

start at the concrete trail at the end of the road and go down untill you get to the hills, ride through and go to the ditch at the end and follow the trail around at one point you have a decision to make the trail slits take the right and slip through take the left and it splits again but they come back together for a choice of 3 drop off's anywhere from 2 ft to 4 ft from there continue to follow the trail right before it comes out of the woods you have another choice turn left(still being groomed) and go through the ditch or go out of the woods and circle back on the dirt road the trail is on the other side of the ditch follow it around to the right then left it comes out of the woods briefly and shoots back in follow that back to the hills for now(kevin and i are starting work on a new part of the trail to prevent this) at the end of the hills take a sharp left and follow it back to the start area

This trail deffinatly smokes me! Lots of nice technical track, especially since we aint got any kind of hills let alone mountains. I just started mountain biking and I love it! I have a Raliegh M80. The drop offs are a little crazy for me still but soon I will take them. I just wish I knew if I was riding the trail the right way, cuz I get a little off coarse I think. I like the track though!

Customer Service

Follow the white ties and pick your own rout, easy to get turned aroun because there is so many other routs.

I think thi sis a good trail. It has a good mix of everything and is good fo most levels of riders. I consider myself fairly advanced and it is still an interesting ride to me in some sections. I tis the most dynamic trail in this area.

Customer Service

Start at the mounds and work your way to the ditch by the sandy road. Go through the trail and follow the ties and signs. Easy to get turned around. Or go the other way at the mounds and there are some goo routes to the left at the fork.

I'm sorry but there is no way this trail can be rated higher than Bull Mtn. I rode it when first built by acouple of guys in the military and for the area it is nice, the whoop-tee-doos are nice but a 4.75 no way. Nice place to start out but definitely not higher than 2.00
