Review: Great track if you're around the area. Flows pretty well with some fun obstacles. Also catch some speed around mile 6.

Review: Starting on the trail going right of the pond results in some wonderful single track for about 1.5 miles. From there the trail goes into very wide single track in a very unattractive environment. Tree harvesting = ugly. Hope it recovers in the next few years. Areas that were out and out boring could use some berms and other features to liven up the ride. If your going to use a bobcat to make a trail might as well use it to the fullest!

Review: Rode last weekend on a rather overcast day and had a good time. Trail is well marked and not terribly technical (at all really) which is fine with me. Apparently the fire department or somebody has recently come through and done a bit of clearing; this made some areas rather desolate and others bland (riding on what is basically a dirt hill) but overall the trail is still fun and well-marked. There were a couple spots where roots were the perfect combo of being at odd angles, downward sloping and on a ledge or in an uphill turn; personally I find these to be my worst enemy but ultimately not a huge deal. Had a lot of fun and it was worthwhile break from the drive to Atlanta. Hard to use the difficultly scale on this one due to the clearings, but should be good for most anyone.

Review: The trails are open from the timber harvesting, but the machines laid waste to several parts of the trail. There will be a cleanup day this weekend (September 26 2015) that should help with it, but until then, be aware that you won't be able to get through portions of the trail.

Review: I am sure the trail is great but I went for the first time today and the trails are closed for timber to be cut. No reopen date posted

Review: Stopped by here on way to Savannah for business trip. Locals were great and really helpful. Started counter clockwise from parking area. First 1.5 miles was really fun with single track, winding up and down riding. More intense than I was expecting, but certainly an intermediate trail. A couple a tough tight turns on climbs with roots keep you on your toes. After first section trail opens to mix of single and double track and isn't as technical as first part. Nice flow with mostly easy climbs and turns and some fun down hill sections through the pines.. Mostly well marked. At about 7 miles it becomes more single track with a bit of a couple of climbs. Some pretty decent flow before opening out to the small lake, which is back at the parking area. There is roughly 9 miles of trail. It say 7 above but it has recently been added to. If you are in the area I definitely recommend stopping by for a fun ride.
