Review: Fun trail. Nothing too technical, a couple of tight turns you have to make or you're swimming with the fishes. Good time

Review: Excellent trail system... well marked. I'm new to trail riding and prefer blue level and black diamond trails. Great variety for the novice to experienced rider. Worth the 2.5 hour drive.

Review: Great trail system with stuff for beginners and advanced riders. Flowy trail with technical features in the right spots, some small climbs (20') and tricky sections but not too technical. A lot like Santos but much shorter and has one big easy loop to link in the harder trails. The only bad thing is the outer loop is bi-directional so watch for other riders, there are a few blind corners. Thinking that this system just made the IMBA Epic cut, wasn't much "epic" about it. Not like killer downhill runs on a mountain type epic, more like most of the trails look the same and stop don't stop because 1,000 mosquitoes will swarm you type epic. But do yourself a favor and ride Santos, grade A right there! Anything south of Santos is all just blah.
Also there's a $4 entry fee.

Review: Rode this park twice over past month. Lot of great natural trail. The Green trails can tend to be sandy, but the great Intermediate and Advanced selections.
