Review: This is a very short ride. i may not have seen all it has to offer, but it very poorly marked. The signs didnt really make labeled "main trail" ended up a dead end after 50 yards. I rode "loop trail" for 2 quick laps (maybe 30 minutes) and stopped. Trail was overgrown and not very challenging. I would highly recommend going to Chatt if you have the time. One positive is the scenery on the "overlook" cutouts. The last section is a decent downhill that is fun, but if you are an experienced rider you will end up wanting more after a few loops.

Review: It is a fairly clean trail with some rocks, roots, and fallen trees. A sign posted in the parking lot says foot traffic only and no vehicles. It is a short loop with good down hill and climbs. I started riding down one side trail and noticed a small sign stating no bikes. It is not very well marked where you can and cannot ride.

Review: Sweet Downhill. the end of the trail pops out on cox valley road. Leave a car at the bottom and shuttle up to black mountain. The downhill is 3.8 miles and very scenic. One of the highest points on the plateua.

Review: Recent upgrades to the trail make it a sweet semi-downhill run. Fairly short, mostly down hill. Some of the best views on the plateau. Trail is very fast and mostly clean. Few trees lying down and very few roots. Mostly large rocks flow easily with the trail.

Similar Trail: Join the connecting trail on hwy 68 unless it is part of the cumberland trail now. (not sure)
