Offline map is recommended. Users have reported that the trails are not marked well. This is a growing and improving trail system, so please be flexible. There are three trailheads on Commence Drive and you can also ride from downtown Elizabethtown using Haycraft and Cave Springs Trails. Look for RED and YELLOW arrows marking the main 5 mile loop. Yellow is clockwise and Red is counter-clockwise. Trails are built and maintained by the local mountain biking and trail running community.Show more
