Rode for the first time recently, and just a note on conditions: There are quite a few trees down across the trail, and several of the trail markers are down as well.
Incredible ride, with scenery that is amazing. Wide variety of trail from grassy double track, technical single track, steep climbs, and very fun downhill to complete the ride.
Some advice for first timers.
Southern Trail Head: There are no markers along the road. Look for the tower, with two gates, at the top of North Fork Mountain. You can find the first trail marker not too far in along the grassy double track.
Expect two very challenging climbs riding south to north. Also, towards the end, past Landis Trail, expect a downhill section of large, technical rocks.
Take plenty of water. * Review edited 7/28/2012
