Trail Description
About this trail
It's a well marked trail with several water crossings that, depending on recent weather, can be pretty good. At about the 2.5- 3 mile mark if there has been recent rain, it becomes extremely difficult, but can be passable. Worth the ride, and a good place to hit up for a quick ride after work. There are a couple of trails that go off away from the lake that have some jumps and a few that go towards the power lines. There you can find some rock gardens to play in, as well.

Review: This is a really fun trail, but it has a few downsides. Firstly, its relatively short, especially if you stay within the limits of the actual park (which is unmarked). If you keep going down the path you will get to a powerline break. Somewhere around here this becomes private land, but the trail continues along the powerline break and into some woods. In these woods there may be some people shooting guns off to one side into a berm near the lake. At this point you can take one of two trails to a cotton field. One goes through the woods, the other follows the power lines. You can actually go all the way to cliff dale and onto Fort Bragg if you cross the road. The other downsides are that this is heavily trafficked by hikers/runners, especially the first few miles, and the mud. When it rains, stay off this trail. It turns into a lot of mud patches, and the stream crossings, which are normally easy, become really slick. All the way to Cliffdale is about 4.5 miles you can cross and continue without running into any fences for another few miles as well.

Review: Today was the first day in a while where the temp dropped below 80 degrees so I thought I take my bike out for a ride. Before I rate this trail let me just say I was in Alaska for a while so my view might be a little off. The trail is not intermediate at all. There is nothing as far as jumps, bumps or anything to get some air. It is not well maintained and the rain washed out a lot of areas of the trail. Looked around for some side trails to see if there is more action but it was the same there. Not a bad trail for a little hike with the kids or a easy beginner type trail. If you are looking for a thrill or even a raised heartbeat then this is not a trail for you. Again I am not discrediting other riders here. The trails in Alaska are amazing and that is what I am used to. Have fun guys and gals.

Review: Main trail is filled with hikers, runners, and dog walkers for at least the first two miles or so. This section is also the primary portion with water crossings. Just off to the right (opposite from lake) are a bunch of single tracks. There are some green and red trail markers which feature some technical single track

Review: This is a good trail, but it's also a walking trail. So you have to be careful. There's also a little trail that leads around the lake as well. You can see a 360 tour at www.fayettevillevt.com.

Review: This is an add on for a couple of add on single tracks that are well marked along the way on the power line portion. Rode them last night, and the blue route is a good ride. Get on it! The MAIN TRAIL is wide open and good to go. Some of the single tracks that are off of the trail may need some maintenance.

Review: This trail has a main path that is very wide, but has multiple water crossings. There are also some smaller trailers that branch off the main trail for a more intense ride.

Review: @ toasterbiscuit:
The bridges are part of the walking trail on the other side of the road. It is on the park side that is not around the lake.

Review: Photos 7 and 8 show some kind of a bridge. I just rode this trail and never came across this bridge. Where is it?

Review: Not a bad ride, improves with weather. Don't under-estimate any water crossings...
