Bicycling mag praises Brown County SP mountain bike trails
Start Date: 7/19/2018
Event Description:

Bicycling Magazine’s website has named Brown County State Park among the “Top 6 Secret Mountain Bike Destinations in the U.S.”

 

Brown County’s trails are already well known in Indiana and throughout the Midwest. But the magazine’s online article, published July 12, helps introduce them to readers across North America.

 

The author, Robert Annis, is a cyclist from Indiana. He praised the park trails for being “fast, flowy and full of thrills.” He listed the recently completed Hobbs Hollow Trail as a must-ride.

 

“It’s impossible not to smile as you rocket through the bermed turns, building up speed, and launching yourself off tabletop after tabletop,” Annis wrote about Hobbs Hollow. “Your tires spend almost as much time in the air as they do on the dirt.”

 

Brown County State Park offers 35 miles of mountain bike trails ranging from beginner to expert. The park has previously been designated a Bronze-Level Ride Center by the International Mountain Bike Association.

"Trails leading out of the park and into the neighboring Yellowwood State Forest have a more backcountry feel, with multiple log crossings and large rocky obstacles," says Annis.

 

Annis also suggests riders on overnight trips stay in the park’s campgrounds because of their proximity to the trail system. You can read the article at bicycling.com.

 

Brown County State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2988.htm) is at 1450 S.R. 46 E in Nashville, 47448.
