This is a nice hilly trail with several good cutbacks and some pretty stretches along bottomland forest next to a stream.

With that being said, I've had several bad experiences at Scattertown. It's not uncommon to find branches, vines, and all other sorts of debris scattered across the trail. Trees have fallen across the path and have been left there for about a month before whoever manages this trail got to it (I'm an MSU student, so I don't have a chainsaw or anything...). Most recently I brought a date and we were attacked by bees about halfway through the trail. My date was stung about 6 or 7 times.

Overall it's a nice natural route, but it seems very poorly maintained compared to the trails I'm used to back home in North Carolina.

I used to take this trail clockwise, but I've found more recently that it has a better flow to it if you go counter clockwise. There's more immediate up and down if you go clockwise.

Though there is nothing really technical here, there are some sharp turns and short, steep hills. The trail is all in the woods, therefore it should be good for summer. I've never seen the trail muddy, so we select this trail to ride after winter rains.
Beginners may have a rather hard time riding this trail.

Customer Service

It's probably a little easier to ride this loop counter clockwise. Also, it's best to get a map for the second loop from the Starkville Bicycle Shop.
