Mohican is Ohio’s oldest and arguably best location for Downhill. It’s been around nearly as long as the sport itself. In 2010 the land was leased to Tree Frog Canopy tours, who’ve put in a top notch ropes course. Tree Frog, being outdoor enthusiasts as well as rather cool folks, have allowed us to continue to use the trails.
Mohican has a good amount of vertical drop for Ohio (nearly 200′) and is relatively easy to shuttle, although it is a dirt road. The terrain is excellent for making technical trails, with good gradient and lots of rock. The drainage is also relatively good, so it can be ridden through out the year on good days. The three trails offer decent variety and a good place to train for bigger East Coast tracks. It’s enough to entertain yourself for a solid day. Be warned though, these trails have teeth, and many can show you bite marks. I broke my ankle there this summer.
Rock: This seems to be a favourite among the plow bike brigade for it’s good sampling of East Coast rocks. It’s also longer than the others, at over 1:30, and flatter than the others. It lacks race course like corners because it was laid out back in the days of freeride.
Powerline: A more direct line down the hill under the powerline clearing, this trail has a little of everything including some nice man made jumps and optional rock drops. Be wary though, some of the woodwork entry ladders are nearly compost.
Trail 3: This trail starts with some great rock features, including a three option rock drop. And there are some fun bermed corners before it merges back in with Powerline.
There are also some hidden features around the hill, and the bigger ones (like large gap jumps) were fashioned by the legendary “Toledo Guys”. These guys have put in a lot of digging time over the years, and we thank them.
No single organization is looking after the trails at Mohican. It has always been a collective effort by the riders to maintain the trails. So if you plan to ride Mohican regularly, you should also plan to help keep the trails riding nicely.
Thanks to Rob for these shots.
