MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL DESCRIPTIONS, Mt. Sabattis Recreation Area
START ME UP (.75km) An intermediate, TWO-WAY, machine-built trail beginning at the Northeast corner of the tennis courts. This flowy trail follows the terraced section of Mt Sabattis before winding through the woods and emerging in the Pavilion parking lot. Some features include a pump section, hair pin turns and a bridge crossing, and is equally fun riding in both directions.
LET IT LOOSE (.75km) A beginner, TWO-WAY, machine-built trail that is the perfect warmup or introductory mountain bike trail. This trail is slightly wider than the others and features both woods and field riding, including multiple bridges and rollers to help new riders work on basic mountain bike skills.
BLACK & BLUE (1.25km) An intermediate, TWO-WAY, machine-built trail traversing through woods and the fields. Slightly narrower trail than Let It Loose, expect higher speeds, tighter corners, and larger rollers than the beginner trails, but is still very approachable for novice bikers.
WAITING ON A FRIEND (.3km) A beginner, TWO-WAY, machine-built spur trail that branches off Black & Blue on east edge of the field. This trail is very flat and wide is a good spot to stop for a quick breather while riding, or a good spot to let the dog get a drink of water.
PAINT IT BLACK (1.25km) An expert, machine-built trail with two distinct sections. The first section is a TWO-WAY trail branching off Black & Blue climbing up Mt Sabattis as it winds through the woods, eventually crossing the field and entering the woods on the eastern side of the property before eventually merging with the Powerline/Northville-Placid Spur Trail. The second section starts as you emerge from the NPT Spur Trail and becomes a directional ONE-WAY downhill trail with a machine-built jump line featuring tabletops, step-ups, and a rock drop. All the features are rollable, but do not have any ride arounds.
