Waggoners run mountain bike trail map

 Waggoner's Run Mountain Bike Trail was created by the Flatlanders Bicycle Club in 2019.  The trail was dedicated in October of 2020 and named
"Waggoner's Run" after local cycling enthusiast and bicycle shop owner, Dan Waggoner.  The trail boasts 4.7 miles of twists, turns and challenging natural as well as man-made features.  The trail winds its way around the trees surrounding the S.C.R.A.P. barn.  The trail is open for mountain bikes as well as hiking, we recommend hikers hike the trail in reverse and stay alert for oncoming bike traffic.  The trail is a one way mountain bike trail, beginning at the parking lot next to the railroad tracks on County Road 65.  Please no horseback riding, pets or motorized vehicles.  Please see our Waggoner's Run Mountain Bike Trail Facebook Page 

 

Trail Etiquette

Directional Trail   Trail is to be ridden from Shade road parking lot entrance only, do not ride the opposite direction.

Bikers and Hikers Only  Dogs, equestrians and motorized vehicles are prohibited

Yield Appropriately  Hikers should yield to bicyclists.  Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming - a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods.  Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Slow down and exercise courtesy when passing hikers.

Be Aware  It is the responsibility of every trail user to maintain awareness of their surroundings.  Inattention can lead to incidents with other trail users. Please control your speed.

Use Designated Trails Only  Do not go off trail (even to pass).  Stay on designated trail for bikes only.

Competitive Racing is Prohibited

Come Prepared  Keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies.  Helmets highly recommended for bicyclists using this trail.

Leave No Trace  Practice low-impact hiking and cycling.  Riding on a muddy trail damages the trail.  It leaves ruts, contributes to erosion & creates an un-rideable, hard to fix trail surface.  If you are leaving a visible rut, the trail is too muddy to ride.  Check for possible trail closures and restrictions on our Waggoner's Run Mountain Bike Trail Facebook Page.
