Review: This park has some fun trails to ride and was the place I started to teach my kids trail ride. We return often, and my son and I really enjoy the Hardcore Trail. It has some nice drops and climbs, but watch the roots.

Review: Campbell's pond and hardcore were in miserable shape in August 2011. Not an exciting trail system.

Review: Great trail system that includes K3, campbells pond and hardcore. K3 is 10 miles, not 7.5 as listed, no real climbing. Lots of fast open singletrack with real tight and twisting sections. The trail builders made excellent use of the natural features of the area. Some minor sand, but not enough to slow you down like at sesqui. Real good for a single-speed. Campbell's pond is about 10 miles total including the Poinset connector and a brief section of road. Very similar to K3's description. Hardcore has the most hills and is much slower than the other 2 trails, it's about 2.5-3 miles and it's trailhead is about 1.5 miles on K3. HC was still under repair in early Nov. from a motorcycle race that used part of it and signs listed it as closed.

Review: THIS REVIEW IS ONLY ABOUT THE HARDCORE SECTION OF KILLER III. The "Hardcore" section of this trail is terrible! It starts off alright going through some singletrack with leaves and then very slightly starts uphill with some sand. Next, the tight singletrack turns into about 6 feet wide four wheeler / dirtbike trails. VERY thick dirt that you sink down into, no trail markers, just an uncomfortable ride. If you keep riding (a very tough decision for us, whether to turn around or not) you will eventually find a trailmarker and a great little singletrack. Once you start to enjoy yourself you hop right back on the four wheeler trail. Killer III by itself is a great trail. Just stick with that and if that's not enough, ride Cambell's Pond afterwards. K3 and Cambell's Pond are great. Hardcore is terrible.

Review: Killer III is a lot of fun. Singletrack with good downhill, and optional Hardcore extension, but Hardcore is terrible. Just take Killer III, without extension it's about 10 miles. Campbell pond is pretty good. Good bit of climbing, good downhill and about 4 miles.
