This trail is both the Northern and Southern Piranha Pit Trails in one 4 mile loop. The northern trail is mostly designated for mountain biking but hiking and trail running is allowed so expect several elevation changes along the way. There are several interconnecting trails throughout but most of the outer trail can be navigated by paying close attention to the trail blazes/markings along the way. Most of the northern section has trail markers for the mountain bikers to follow but portions of this hiking trail venture off of the bike trail where you will see old markings on some of the trees, portions of these trails haven't been used in some time. This trail is not easy to access for most but if you are given the opportunity I would highly recommend hiking this trail. Northern trail info coming soon.
