All around, a great trail, although its really not my prefered type of trail(i'm the type who like rough & technical trails) but I'd go back at any time to simply ride this one trail, it's that good. It's more flow-type riding oriented(Meaning if you are a smooth rider, you will fly along this roller coster of a trail, i did) It helps that I was riding around sunset, the sun was in the trees, and I was riding exceptionally well because I had just placed 7th at the high school state championships, which was held on a outstanding course that you should ride, even if you aren't going to race.

Customer Service

take the buffalo road( basically wide & smooth double track, and ride the Sal Hallow trail counter-clockwise if you are looking for a easier trail ride with a long middle ring downhill, or if you want more technical riding, ride it clockwise starting on the Sal Hallow trail, and ending on Buffalo (I was told that you could do this after I had completed the ride in the counter-clockwise manner

Similar Products Used: I would recommend the race couse for the Ky state high school championships for someone looking for a more technical ride(It's at Park Mammoth Resort, be sure to ask for permission at the Lodge before riding the course) the resort owners are bike friendly and are good people

This trail is acutually two trails combined making a wonderful 11 mile trip through some beautiful heavily wooded forest. Trails are marked very well, and offer a wide range of riding styles. Several steep, rocky hills but plenty of fast winding curves to match. A must ride when visiting the Mammoth Cave Park area.

Customer Service

Reccomend you pick up a map, or make notes of map at the trail head. Upon Leaving Maple Springs travel the loop counter clockwise leaving on Buffalo Trail.

Similar Products Used: There are three trails currently open to bikes at this time. Buffalo, Sal Hollow and Turnhole bend. Turnhole bend offers easy riding to the river-realitively straight and small hills.

This is a great trail to ride. According to the Park officials the trail is actually 12.5 miles. It has some great downhill action and some pretty steep inclines. The riding surface varies from sand to mud or even some slick rock. A definite must ride for any advanced rider.

Customer Service

same as above

Rode with my wife who was a little leary of the "Advanced" designation of the trail. Once we got on the trail all concerns went away. While the terrain is hilly and there are some rocks and log piles, the ride is completely enjoyable. Most internediate riders should have no problem with this trail. The trail is a lot like some of the better trails in northern Michigan, only with bigger hills and a lot less sand. Riding the Sal Hallow trail was one of the highlights of our vacation this spring. A definite must-ride if you are in the area.

Started at the church, rode the road down to Buffalo 2 track. Took a left at the next 2 track (forget the name) and took another left to ride the southern half of the Sal Hallow singletrack. About 8 miles total.
