Very fun trail, ingenious design. They have done amazing things with this small plot of land, lots of switchbacks but it doesn't feel repetitive, lots of fun downhills even though there isn't much elevation, plenty of shortcuts but you can still find your way.

All of the trails are built sustainably with good bench cuts and the downhills are quite long (uncommon characteristics this far south). There is also a fun switchback climb with some rocky parts. Otherwise the climbing is pretty easy, but somehow you seem to go downhill more than up. There are a lot of users, so trail tread is very smooth and hardpacked, plenty of good corners to rail.

Could not find the trail. Drove up and down north livingston, and on every side road off of it. Was a huge let down and even a bigger waste of gas! I saw no turn off, no parking area, no nothing. North livingston was the major road it was supposed to be close to in accordance with the map provided on this page by google. Oh well...

Dude & Dudetts, this trail rocks. Something for everyone. It's all packed singletrack. The TCMBA works these trails. Fast flat areas, good climbs, some techy stuff with the limestone rocks. Even a shallow cave to see on the ride. If you are in this part of Mississippi, it's a must ride.

Customer Service

The whole thing, forwards and backwards.

Ground was broken on this trail in 2006 and improvements have been made every year since and are ongoing. Currently just over 8 miles of trail with plans to get it up to 9 this winter. Switchbacks? Check. Rock gardens? Check. Log piles? Check. Climbing? Check. Technical singletrack? Dadgum right. We make the most of our 80 acres.

Customer Service

Follow the arrows to ride the race loop or just get lost exploring...you're never more than 10min. from the car.

These trails have matured nicely since construction started. There are over 8 miles of trail constructed, with enough variation for riders of any skill level to enjoy a 2-3 hour ride. Future plans include a skills area as well as log rides and man-made features for advanced riders.

The Ridgeland Trails recently played host to the final race of the South Central Regional Championship series. The 8 mile race course is marked with orange arrows, and is the best way to get in almost every inch of trail on the property without overlap. There is also a beginner course that cuts out the most difficult 3 miles of trail, creating a 5 mile loop. This can currently be ridden by starting with the orange arrows and turning at the "beginner course" sign for a shortcut.

TCMBA, affiliated with IMBA, started building this trail system in 2006 and has 5 miles of trails constructed and hardened. We are using green, blue and black levels for the trails. The elavation changes make for some tough climbing and an 8 mile ride gives you 2K ft. of climbing. The green and blue trails are easy if you are new and fun if you are experienced. Beautiful mature hardwoods surround you, and the land has rock formations and a rock -stone overlook with a naturally terraced switchback. We hope to get 8 miles on the land, and expect it to become a great trail system. Maps are available at the trailhead, and day passes are available at the bike shops Indian Cycle and The Bike Rack. Otherwise, annual membership is required.

Customer Service

Ride it all until your legs give out. The northern perimeter has the climbs and the log-cedar bridge for a skill drill. The southern half has the green trails and is basically flat.
