Description
This is a new trail built by volunteers and Route 66 bike shop. Counter clockwise or clockwise either way it's pretty easy. There are a few areas (creek crossings) that may be challenging for beginners but a slightly experienced rider will have no issues with this trail. Lots of rocks and not much elevation gain.

Review: Awesome trail system! We rode it clockwise and it flowed nicely. Lots of rocks. The trail tread seems to change every mile or so which is pretty cool. There is some climbing but none of the grades are too steep or extended. Excellent use of the terrain. This was my wife's first ride of the year and she loved it.

Review: Sweet. Really nice. Trail can go ether direction. Starting at parking TH is back by drive way on E side or you can go down the cinder path till pavement and you'll see the other end on the RT. Trails are well tended with no debris, even the leaves were swept off . Lots of the trail is nice smooth woods riding, but at least half is rocky gnarly stuff to keep it interesting. Three sections labeled intermediate have bypasses but they each have an advanced section in middle(should be ride able, even if I endoed :( It's also a good long trail with lots of good climbing, but you could bail half way on the jogging path.Way fun if you like some ruff stuff.

Review: Enjoyed the trail. Nice loop than can be done rather quickly. Very few technical challenges. Mostly level with some slight elevation changes.

Similar Trail: None at this time. Just moved to area and checking them all out!!

Review: Smooth and fast some short gradual climbs, not really technical at all, but really fast and buff! Good trail. Don't ride while wet, don't ruin it for the rest of us...

Review: Couple of good elevation changes. Lots of rocks and some tough creek crossings. Light technical work. i think you could rate this trail in a higher difficulty if it were longer. Overall it is fun and close by like mtnspectre said. That makes it a 5 for me.

Review: Nice singletrack trail for the area. Some rocks but not very technical. Still a good trail to ride and the plus is, it's not an hour drive for me.
