A few options on the mountain biking - 6 mile and 24+ mile trail loops. Moderate difficulty with a few good climbs. Great trail and well placed climbs and descents on the full distance. If you only want to do the 6 mile - the turnoff is sharp and easy to miss so keep your eyes open.

This hike relies on about 4 miles of Mountain biking trail to make an actual loop. More moderate than hard, though there is Decent elevation.

The scenic out and back down the river (Hemlock Gorge) will still clock your 6 miles and offer much more to see.

For a true moderately difficult trail with plenty of elevation and scenic views, check out Hog Hollow and Lyons Falls trails!

Walked the MTB 24 mile loop yesterday. Was gorgeous scenery and fairly quiet, with some road noise in the background for a couple of miles. Primarily had the trail to myself hiking. Saw three MTBers, and one trail runner.

It's a good challenging hike for the full 24. I started out around 10:30, made it to the covered bridge by 1:30 and stopped for lunch, then continued on the trail which follows the road then goes back into the woods on the right.

Like others have said, the last couple miles kick your butt. It was also a bit wetter there, with a ton of rocks and roots at the end.

Overall fantastic hike. Thinking about doing the loop again in the future, but would love to stop and see some of the other smaller trails that come off the MTB loop.

Great trail though used for mountain biking but plenty of room for hikers. Only did the short loop today but great view of nature!

Our family of 6 hiked the 3.2 mile Yellow bridle trail south of 97. Great, quick morning hike. Very nice trail, good elevation change and two creek crossings. Will come back for sure to try the other trails. Disappointed to see All Trails didn't have these trails on their map. My phone lost signal so was unable to track/map our course.

Amazing and technical trails. Went her to MTB and did some hiking. There are tons of accesses and there are a lot of place to eat and relax after a good ride or hike!

Looking forward to hiking on the 24 mile loop this Saturday. We will be staying in one of the Mohican State Park cottages for the weekend. Any insight on the specifics of the loop would be appreciated.

This is just a trail with mainly all climbs. Nothing really technical. Vultures knob is a much better ride.
