I just rode here on Monday on the way back to Florida from North Carolina. I was very impressed with the trails and terrain here.These are great "old school" natural trails. Everything seems pretty untouched--lots of rocks and roots. The trails are pretty technical and challenging. I had a lot of fun, especially on the Sulphur Springs downhill; although I was bummed to find out that they apparently modified it to be slower and easier a few years ago. Some of the climbs on Brissy Ridge and Kanuga were pretty brutal and I had to walk in some sections. I could see those being a lot of fun to ride clockwise since they would be mainly downhill. The area around the lake was very beautiful and I would like to come camp here some time. When I rode it had just recently rained and the trails were pretty wet in some areas, but seemed to handle the rain pretty well.
Some downsides to the trail system are that the trails are closed to bikes on Saturday and the system is relatively short.
