Most recent status of Duck River (8/29/16):
As of this posting, there are approximately 10 miles of trail open at Duck River. County Road 1651 has been split in two from the filling of the reservoir, and the current trail runs from one dead end of it to the other. Parking is available at both ends. This is the only section of trail currently open to the public – the rest is still considered a construction zone and is patrolled by law enforcement.
Trails are being built by Flowmotion Trail Builders. Flowmotion owner Preston York took me on a tour in February, and it has very nice flow with minimal elevation change and a few technical sections to challenge your skills. Much more to come, stay tuned!
A few technical sections to play on:
RIDING CUES (going counter clockwise from trailhead marked on map above):
When you get to the first hard road, take a left and go across the bridge. Pick up the trail again on the left just past the guardrail. Be careful here, cars carry a lot of speed coming down the hills on either side of the bridge. The trail will eventually go under this bridge once a bridge for the trail is complete. Just before you come to the hard road, the trail also splits off to the left. This is a short, technical section that dead ends after a short distance.
When you get to the second hard road, go straight across to pick up the trail again.
The third hard road you come to is where the trail currently ends
