Learn more about Union University Trail.
The trail is a beginner trail with a few sections of intermediate level technicality. There are two loops, one old and one new, both of which were (I believe) built with the hands of the local bike club, The Jackson Spokes. The southern loop (older loop) is a short (roughly 1-mile?) and fast loop with a couple of short steep hills, mostly fast with some tight trails in a coniferous area. Take the exposed connector trail parallel to the road north to the second loop which is roughly 2 miles. This trail has some nice fast sections mixed with short hill charges and ridge descents. Elevation change is not a factor here, but the terrain is varied enough to make it fun. Lots of walkers and runners so watch for users! Thanks to Jackson Spokes and Union University!
