The trails are blazed by different colors: Blue Loop (14 miles), Yellow Loop (10 miles), White Loop (14 miles), and Orange Loop (11 miles). These soft dirt trails are maintained by a local equistrian organization. Keep an eye out for bobcats, deer and fox. The best trailhead is Tadra Point Campground (no water).

To reach the mountain biking trailhead from Decatur, head north on SR730 for 10 miles. At the cemetary, turn left heading southwest on CR2461 (Cottonwood Cemetary Road). At the fork, turn right on CR2560 for 3 miles. Then turn left on FS900 for 2 miles. The trailhead is on the right.
