Review: A solid intermediate course when considering entry/exit trails close to the lake and short, steep inclines. You will have to dismount a couple of times if you do not have your line set up due to rooty surface on the climbs. Webs are like guitar strings out here; one giant, fat spider rappelled off my helmet brim after he caked me with his stringy fortress. Once you get to the "roller-coaster", groomed trail it is a blast! Several rolling switchbacks and grippy turns. There is a lot of trash out at the "BMX" section with a couple of launches, didn't have a bag to haul out the garbage. Overall, needs some attention, but fun to explore. Primary trail is marked with pink ribbons on the trees, but easy to get lost if you don't hug the lake because of several shoot-outs leading to private land or dead ends. It's possible to do a loop around the lake if you exit out of the back of the hospital parking area.

Review: Is anyone interested in getting together over a weekend or something and doing a little trail clean-up? With light maintenance and maybe a little trail marking this place would be excellent. I live nearby, but am a novice when it comes to trail construction.

Review: The trail was a bit of fun. Not very well maintained though. The trail is covered in leaves on most places. It isn't marked except for the trailhead which can lead to some confusion. I ended up doing the loop backwards because there was no indication of which way to go and I'd never been there before. The dirt jumps are eroding and a few of the wooden ramps are broken. The teeter totter works but is starting to break. There isn't any major elevation change throughout the trail but it does make good use of the small hills and valleys surrounding the lake. Overall it's a nice trail but definitely needs some TLC.

Review: This is a fun trail, there's a little bit of everything. A mild double track and some more technical single track with a few jumps. I'm just getting back into riding so I thought it was great. Not overcrowded at all. Watch out for the roots. Will definitely go back.

Review: I'm currently on a work trip in the area and took my bike with me to test this trail. I like the trail it has a nice flow. It doesn't really have any elevation gain or loss but that's a no brainer so close to the ocean. There are a couple of small jumps on the trail and a few log obstacles. It seems the fallen trees others have complained about were removed. I just took a 4 mile loop but others said they done a 10 mile loop so there is much I didn't see on this trail. All in all I liked the ride criss crossing through the wooded area around Lake Maury.

Review: Great trail with little/no markings/signs. You'll probably get lost your first time there but you'll have a great time doing it.

Review: I rode this to get back into the groove of xc, being fat and out of shape I am fairly sure I died twice on this trail

Review: I was pretty happy with this trail, especially given the location. It's a rather large network of mostly single and double track with a few features here and there, lots of logs, some bridges, jumps, and at least one teeter-totter. Though there is no meaningful elevation change, the trail takes advantage of moderate undulations for opportunities to pick up speed and fight the roots climbing back up short hills. Definitely a quality beginner/intermediate trail but probably somewhat boring for repeated use if you're in the more advanced category.
