This trail is not for beginners. Good handling and balance, as well as endurance, is needed to complete the almost 4 miles of rugged trail.

Review: Great trail, one of the best in Augusta. Some steep tough climbs, lots of creek crossings (some are hub deep or more!), some rocks, and some high speed sections. Super fun.

Review: Surprising variety here with technical sections sprinkled in. The woman at the park office said all the trails were open to bikes but some of them were definitely better suited to hiking than biking. I lost the trail a couple times out here and wandered onto sections that simply disappeared. Bring a map, especially in the fall when leaf litter obscures the trail.

Similar Trail: Baker Creek in McCormick (though it's been years since I've ridden there and it may have changed since then.)

Review: Just got back from riding Mistletoe. What a fun trail, numerous creek crossings, good make you think climbs, the slot (trail goes down a tight twisty gully) some fast sections. Favorite section is a long off canter climb covered with baby heads and roots. Old School mt bike trail.

Similar Trail: Keg Creek, Modoc,

Review: This trail is more of a hiking trail that allows bikes than a true mtb trail. It doesn't seem that any locals get out there to maintain it, there were several large trees that could have ramps built up to them to allow some fun jumps and obstacles, but instead you have to heft your bike over them. After chatting with the ranger, there are sections he just is not able to get in and clear so instead there are detours around fallen trees. There were some nice rock gardens that offered fun technical challenges. The creek crossings weren't too bad, but very hard to ride out of.

Review: There are two bike trails in Mistletoe, Cliatt Creek Nature Loop and the Rock Dam Loop. The Rock Dam is the main feature, Cliatt Creek just gets you there and back. The two trails are about 10 miles total. A few tough climbs, nothing sustained though. Lots of creek crossings, some are big creeks and are not rideable after heavy rains. Besides the creek crossings, there are two techinical highlights. One is a gully. The trail drops in the gully, and follows it out. Some places in the gully the trail is only 6" wide, with near vertical walls on either side. There are lots of roots, rocks, and small drops to negotiate as you work your way thru the gully. The other highlight is a long, severly off camber, very, very rocky climb. It's tough, and wonderful. Mistletoe can be linked with Keg Creek and soon the Bartram trail as well, for up to a 63 mile ride.
