Review: I had a great time! The trail is much more rocky than the trails I normally ride in the southeast. There were more than enough trails to make things interesting. You ride along bluffs and go by a Hang Gliding cliff. I met a guy going out to do some upkeep of the hang glide cliff and was going to go watch him fly, but he said the conditions weren't right. You can ride up in the state park and see some of the interesting facts about the park. All in all, I would go back.

Review: Great landscape but not a great riding. Trails are short and crowded with people. Best ride is to use the roads, uphill from down the valley is a cardio challenge

Review: This park has a nice view of the country side and distant Albany. Warm-up by riding the east ridge of the park and work your west. Unless you know your way around and don't mind biking off park land then you'll have a tough time finding 30 miles of trails, 15 is more like it.

Review: Some awesome sections. A little disjointed at times with several short loops. Worth a trip just for the view.
