Review: Great trail. Lots of climbing with some fun fast downhills. Sandy, but not terrible. Pretty well marked. I only got confused a couple times when I took a bypass and was re-joining the main trail (gold loop)

Review: Rode part of the gold trail yesterday. There were a few sandy spots, but not too bad. Riders have packed down the fallen leaves so if you are not very familiar with the trail you won't have too many surprises. Good variety for different levels of riders and well marked with bail outs.

Review: Great trails!! We took the green to blue route and bailed about 3/4 the way through the blue trail because my legs were spent. Still a new rider but was able to handle most everything that blue had to offer. Loved the drop in!! It seemed that there was an equal amount of uphill to downhill and the great part was that the downhill was first. The trail gets pretty sandy in some areas but nothing that can't be handled. Look forward to catching the rest of the trails sometime soon.

Review: Good, long trails. Can be sandy. Show up with a "workout" mindset and you will enjoy it more. We rode all the trails in a couple hours time before we ran out of light and the last hill climb was brutal. Legs were burning. Had a great time, but a lot of work for a day of play.

Review: Great trail design with excellent signage.
Decent climbs with some really steep drops (in and out of washes). This trail doesn't have the rock spines Lake Murray had, but it had other great natural features.

Review: Trail is now just short of 19 miles. It has about a hundred feet of climbing per mile which means a 100 ft of decents every mile.

Review: Drove 3 hours to check out the trail- it certainly didn't disappoint. We did the red, gold, and blue loops (my favorite being the gold). Be really careful of the sand around corners or at the bottom of some of the drops. Some parts of the trail were certainly neglected (branches, sand, no markers) but overall it went well
