The MTB trail at Sesqui is a Jeckyl and Hyde monster. Go out slow, maybe for fun or with the family, and it will probably seem pretty basic. Most of the trail is fairly wide, it is well marked, and the greatest technical features will be rooty/waterstepped climbs or rooty short descents with the greatest drop/ledge being about a 29" wheel height. The surface is sand so it's a fantastic place to ride when the other local trails are too wet. It drains quickly and really firms up when wet. If it's been dry then expect many areas of deep loose sand. This is where I believe the Hyde monster comes in. The trails technicality comes from the sand and going out fast. IMO if Sesqui doesn't seem exciting enough then you need to go faster. This is an excellent trail to test cornering ability and holding speed on an unsure surface. Practice, practice and it will get faster and faster. Lose your focus on cornering and it will let you know quick with a washout.

Nice singletrack trail, light (if any) traffic, some sandy parts but easily manageable. Good, moderate, multi-style course. Perfect for speed, and technical work at low risk.

Did this trail years ago...I remember lots of sand and lots of heat. It was summer time and like a desert. Simply dont recommend. One small downhill which was the highlight until your rims get buried in sand.

Great trail for walking, biking, running. Good place to be outdoors in the woods for a little while and not leave town.

Good trail, not too difficult. As mentioned, alot of straw and even more sand. The mountain bike trail single track isn't really that tight so with the exception of acouple downhill sections through some draws. Nice area, 2$ entrance fee per persona and defiantly alot of sites set up for other family outdoor recreations. Cool outings with the kids and trail runs is what I would use this site for. Mountain biking needs to be expanded here otherwise i'll be hitting harbison state forest for that.
