The Point - TRAIL

The Point - Trail, New Philly, Ohio

Went here with Leggett and Stoneman a few times. Start on the right with the winding downhill. Cross the road and head back to the trail head. The area starts with with a saturated access road with cool downhill. Watch for quads and dirtbikes. The singletrack starts soon after. Eventually you wind up on the access road for power lines. There is a sweeeeeet hill here. careful though, you don't want to bite it at 35-40 mph. THe loop back is mostly climbing, but its a good ride.

These are ATV trails, no tight single track exists. Now that I have ridden various ATV trails, I have noticed one thing with all of them - there are killer hills. Going down them is great, but there is always an uphill.
There were many mud puddles on all trails, most could be navigated without getting covered. The ones that really sucked were when you were going 20 mph around a turn and there is a hidden mud hole. You either jam on the brakes and loose all momentum, or get a face full of stinky mud.
Walking up the hills was pretty tough (steep). Going down the hills was very fast and usually straight, but with washed out rocks.
Getting lost can easily happen, you need to keep your bearings and hope you don't run out of water. There is a large set of power lines that run through the trails, use those as your guide and it should help get you back to where you park.

I only rode the trails on the south side of the road. I sort of thought I knew which direction I was going in, but I had to look for my bike tracks to determine which path was the one back to my car.
It seems like the trails loop around under the power lines or they criss-cross back and forth under the lines.

Similar Products Used: The road is called Steeles Hill Rd. Pretty easy to find.

Just had to say that the guy that said there's no single track is nuts...there's tons of it...you just have to know where it is...anytime someone wants to see them, email me. For ohio trails, it's definitely a 3-4 star.
