MTB trail, XC
This piece of art on the Lohjanharju ridge created by Lohja Trails and Lohja Liikuntakeskus has 8km in its length with the highest elevation of 123m above the sea level. The profile of the trail is really well thought through as it takes you not only along the ridge, offering really gorgeous views, but also down the ridge and back up, offering some really satisfying descents and surprisingly fast-flowing climbs. Another stand-out attribute, which you will notice here is the smoothness of the trail. Ground around here is super well packed and you will get a feeling of a proper flow in local fast twisty sections.
As for now there are also 3 wooden features along the way. 2 jumps and 1 rather large drop. Especially the massive drop doesn't really fit in to the XC style of the trail and that's why the chicken line is really useful. Overall, the trail is a fantastic riding opportunity for riders with any skill level. It's very simple to ride if you approach it as sightseeing, but as long as you truely step on your pedals, you will feel the joy flowing through your body.
It's really simple to navigate yourself around the trail as it's perfectly marked with wooden posts and painted white spots on trees. There is also a trail map right next to the starting gate, may you need some extra preparation before you start your run.
