This short ride, the newest trail at Donnelley, takes you through a thick pine forest. Because the trail was recently cut, the tread is somewhat rough and jarring. Watch for small stumps. The trail’s name comes from the location of the ride, bordered on two sides by freshwater reserves, called “backwater,” which are part of an old rice plantation. Connect this loop to the Boynton Trail by riding the main gravel road, 2.4 miles of flat cruising. This gives you a total of 6.9 miles to explore at Donnelley. Tread: Singletrack.
