The Womble Trail, a 37-mile point-to-point with an 8 mile loop at its northeastern terminus, is one of the best single-track trails. The designers did a superb job here. Switchbacks are used to keep grades manageable, and the trail surface is uniform hardpack with a few rocky stretches. Even beginners will seldom have to portage, unless they are not in good enough physical condition to handle the climbs. This is a perfect trail for novices to experience their first taste of single-track. It crosses roads at regular intervals, giving new riders an opportunity to bail out if the trail proves too much for them. Rarely will you find a trail that traverses such rugged terrain and is still relatively easy to ride. This trail is located 7 miles northwest of Mt. Ida.

Season: While spring and fall offer the best conditions for riding, the Womble Trail is a good ride year-round. Since it follows ridges and crosses only a few shallow streams, wet feet won't be a problem for winter riders. Summer cyclists will enjoy pedaling beneath pine forests that shade the trail for muc

Excellent Trail, beautiful, but horrible fishing. 3 of us caught 1 fish the entire weekend.

this is a very nice and well kept trail; however, if you are looking for any kind of ride other than a cardio workout do not bother. other than riding the loop, which is north of the lake brakes are not even needed on this trail.
