I finally rode Belle Isle today (5/23/10). I have been here a few times with my wife and kids, walking our dog. Now I finally had a chance to check it out on my mtn bike... The main section is totally flat and packed with people walking, jogging, etc.. But, you can easily find the single track trails leading up to the top. Note: For you downhill guys, and rock hoppers, with the full suspension... You all are nuts! LOL... Some of the trails from the top of Belle Isle are not for the faint of heart!
All in all, it's a pretty nice place with a lot of civil war history and real nice scenery. Some of the single track runs are moderate with a small log crossing or two. Others are just downright WICKED, to where my common sense caused me to say "Oh, hell no!" and choose an alternate route!
