Wow, this was a whole lot better than I had expected! Not technical--deep sand is the main difficulty--but there are plenty of roots & ruts to traverse as well. There is also some genuine singletrack here--check the pics--not miles of it, of course, but enough to spice things up a bit. And you'll climb, too, which the sand makes twice as tough. The view at the top is spectacular. I hit 23mph on one of the bigger descents, and caught a few small jumps on the way, too. One drawback is the recent extension of Milam road into the park, which means many of the trails dead-end at the 40-foot berms on the side of the new road and continue on the opposite side--completely spoils the rhythm of the ride. I recommend anyone checking it out for a nice morning ride.
