Birdseye Trail

Birdseye Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Located about 20 miles southeast of Jasper near the Crawford County line. This is an 11-mile main loop with a spur that adds 6 or 7 miles, for a total of about 18 miles. It's a mix of single- and doubletrack with some gravel and dirt roads. Birdseye has it all. there are fast descents on county roads where the berms seemed to have been designed for catching air.

There are miles of tight singletrack. Pine trees and hardwoods, streams and a lake, it's all here. The only downside is that at times it's tough to follow the trail. Getting on and off county roads, going into and out of the woods, the transitions make for some head-scratching moments. Then there are a few trail junctions where what's old and illegal isn't always distinct from what's new and legal."

"To paraphrase the nearby town's founder, "Birdseye Trail suits mountain bikers to a T-y-tee." Birdseye is a light-hearted blend of forest road and singletrack which loops around a small lake, across Mitchell Creek, and through the surrounding woods.

The easy grade of this trail allows ample time to spot wildlife such as grouse, wild turkeys, and pileated woodpeckers. Cyclists beware: ATVs are common on this trail. Trail surface is easy-grade forest roads and singletrack."
