Description of Marl’s Ravine Trail:
This trail is designed to be traveled in a counter-clockwise fashion! Follow the entry sign at the trailhead. Awesome approx. 6.0 mile loop. Lots of short, steep uphills, roots, logs, and switchbacks for your riding pleasure. About 2 miles in, there is a very steep downhill that can be very tricky. More technical and demanding than the Waller Mill trail, Marl Ravine is designed with the intermediate to advanced rider in mind. Beginning riders can finish the Marl Ravine but will probably have to push their bike up most of the climbs and over the more technical sections.
Description of Laurel Glen Trail:
Laurel Glen trail is designed for the beginning to intermediate rider. At about 2 miles in length, Laurel Glen has a couple of "surprises" in store for the rider. There is a really fun downhill about halfway through which is almost immediately followed by one of the two most grueling climbs in the park. Even with the downhill and the climb, beginners should be able to finish this trail with just a little walking. Intermediate to advanced riders can make this trail a multi-lap workout. Trail Notes:About halfway through the trail, you will come out onto a fire road. To continue to the downhill and the switchback climb, bear to the right off the fire road. If you would rather skip the downhill and climb, continue on the fire road until you see the single track re-entry on the left.
There is a parking fee of $3.00 per person or $5.00 per carload Monday-Sunday. This is a state park fee and is not imposed by EVMA. When you pay your fee ask for a park map, it shows the location of the trails.
