Fox Hole Hill

This trail is a part of the Levis Mounds trail system.    

Like Corkscrew, Fox Hole Hill is one of the older pieces of single/doubletrack at Levis Mound and no longer seems to get any traffic.  At only a half of a mile in length it is pretty insignificant, yet at times I would go out of my way to include it in my ride.

It has been a long time since I've ridden it, but Fox Hole Hill always seemed to have a certain sort of flavor that differed from all of the other trails.  It seemed more secluded. Tucked away. Forgotten about.  The age of the trail and how it has worn contributes to its peculiar feeling, as does blowing through a pile of leaves in June because they hadn't been trampled down since the previous one or two falls.

This little tucked away trail used to be one of my favorite spots to go mountainboarding out at Levis during my early highschool years.  The hills aren't too steep, but they tend to go straight up and down with plenty of room to roll out at the bottom.

The little Fox Hole still feels secluded, but no longer really is.  Sidewinder was built into the hill directly above it, and yet is still almost completely obscured by the trees.  If there's not a rider on it and you didn't know about Sidewinder, you could ride peacefully by in your own little world over on Fox Hole Hill.

Mountain-boarding - that's really new for me!

Looks so cool! Please add a contact tab to your blog. I wanna DM you.

Cheers!

Mountainboarding is a ton of fun, but it tends to hurt a lot. I'll get on adding that contact tab... need to decide where it would be best suited. for the moment, if you just access my blogger profile there should be a link there to email me.
