Oxford Mentioned in Best Bike Trails of Mississippi
While Mt Zion in Brookhaven took first place in Best Things Mississippi‘s list of best bike trails, Oxford made the list twice.
Clear Creek, roughly 30 minutes outside of Oxford near Sardis Lake, is ranked second. Also voted best Bike Trail in Mississippi by Mountain Bike Magazine, this is clearly a popular spot. The trail features a 3 mile beginner loop and a longer 8 mile beginner to intermediate loop.
Coming in at seventh are Fruit Loop and Rail Bed, part of the network of trails that can be accessed south of Highway 6 on Chucky Mullins where the Whirlpool plant use to be. The network has a total of 12 trails that are regularly maintained and vary in challenge.
