The Long Loop shares a small section of Pig Hollow with the short loop before heading off on the Heavy Cow Loop and returning for the remainder of Pig Hollow.  It’s quite a long section of trail with a fair amount of climbing involved.

Heavy Cow is way out the back, in fact it’s on the edge of the forest which means there’s quite a bit of light filtering through the trees and there are some great views.  About midway through would be a great place to stop and have a break (9:40 on the video).

The section of the Heavy Cow Loop on the far edge of the forest doesn’t appear to get a lot of traffic in fact on many occasions it was completely covered in pine needles with only rocks, branches and the slight dip in the surface giving any indication of where you should be riding.  With both climbs and descents in this section I found it pretty rewarding.

Heavy Cow has a number of small rock gardens that require your attention.

Blog articles that mention this trail


This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
