Great mountain bike trail for me the wife and 2 kids 13 and 14. Very sandy but fun. Did apply the bug spray and had no problems. GPS clocked 6 miles. Restrooms also not too far away. Even in 95 deg sun.(shady trail) Two thumbs up.

Mountain bike trail also makes a great hiking trail. Several variations on getting to and from the actual bike trail makes this a fun and available hike. Most recent trip was 9.5 miles starting at one of the remote access points to the park.

A great place to ride...when you come out of the woods, turn around and go the opposite way, its a whole different trail! Great workout on your mountain bike, and there is another trail on the bluff that runs along two knotch road. The bigger the tires the better as there is a lot of sand that is deep in some places. Add the 3 mile double track as a warm up and cool down and you can easily ride 12 plus miles. When you cant ride at Harbison due to rain...go check out Sesqui!

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.

For my first mountain biking experience, I'd have to say I started on the perfect trail! Despite the never ending sand, I got a great work out and a very fun ride. There are some small hills (I was told this trail is nothing compared to other trails) but the sand makes you work a bit harder. Lots of twists and turns and a good balance between inclined and declines! Recommended anyone to try it out

Not too difficult of a trail, but there is a lot of sand and pine straw, making it difficult at times. Your speed will really determine how difficult of a ride it will be. Not very technical, but a good ride overall. Definitely worth a trip out there.
