About the Overton Trail


#1

Overton The newest of all the trail systems on the island. Part of it runs on the old Cousin’s paintball property. Built mostly by Hich, rock sections had assistance from Brian C and Kenny R. Also connects to Glacier Ridge for added fun or punishment. Has a very unique woodsy feel with natural rocks along the way. Newest cuts are “Wish you were here”, “Granny Rd”, and “Turkey Hill”. Probably the most off island feel of any trail on the island. Nice flowy terrain with changing sights.

Stats:

Mileage: 11.2 miles total. 3.75 miles main loop with 7.5 miles of optional black diamonds. .25 mile connector to Glacier Ridge.

Flow: Not having extreme elevation change and natural hilly terrain allow you to move along. Some technical features along the way are added fun.
☆☆☆

Overall: Definitely a trail that has a look and feel all it’s own. Good mix of mileage with added technicality to keep you on your toes. Great combo trail for an epic or one it’s own!
☆☆☆1/2
