Southern Illinois Downhill Trails?
I once heard from some riders from southern Illinois that there are DH trails near Carbondale. Maybe they're Jeep trails? Anyone know anything about this or who to ask about them? Thanks for any info.
I'm guessing you are thinking of Fountain Bluff which doubles as Jeep trails. There are also couple of other decent DH's on Buttermilk. In both cases they are mainly double track. I rode Fountain Bluff in the snow a couple of weeks ago but haven't been out there when its dry but I intend to. Buttermilk's connection with Kinkaid is out due to catastrophic damage from a tornado a few years ago that the FS isn't going to touch. But in both cases be prepared to climb!
