Mill Mountain 2:
How was it? I live right in front of Mill Mountain but I don't take my bike up there...from the map it looks like either one big uphill or one big downhill ride...sciron4x4 said:Fantastic. Just hit Mill Mountain for the first time yesterday. Good trails within a few minutes of home.
Really wasn't bad. Parked by the "monument", and rode the Monument Trail, which was a slight uphill before what seemed to be a never-ending downhill. Picked up the Greenway Trail (driveway to mansion) which is all uphill, before picking up the Big Sunny Trail, which is a good mix of up/down. Picked up the Riser Trail from there, and took that back to where we parked.wiretapstudios said:How was it?

Incomplete, but definitely rideable. There's one ditch that needs a bridge. They are going to re-route the trail to come out on Yellow Mountain road on the South End. They have it flagged through the woods but have not worked on the new trailhead. The current trailhead on Fishburne Parkway is about 1/8 mile towards the zoo from the bridge over Yellow Mountain road (look for orange tape on a tree limb if you are on the highway). There is no parking there, so I usually access it from the Ridgeline Trail. Its definitely a better ride from Fishburne Parkway down - but not too bad as a climb from Star Trail parking lot.sciron4x4 said:Sounds like a good ride. Looking at the map, it's showing parts of the trail as "Build for Multi-Use", which I interpreted as "incomplete". So I take it that it IS in fact ridable? If so, I'll definitely check that out next time. Thanks!
