Review: This place is fantastic. A small version of Brown County. There are about 16 miles of varied trail that snakes around rivers, valleys and cliffs. The difficulty is moderate for the most part, all singletrack, rooty and rocky with some minor lung buster climbs. "Grand View" has a really nice flow, the views are spectacular and you really feel secluded. This trail can be packed and you could ride all day without seeing a soul. Bring a camelback and repairs, it could be a very long hike out if you broke down as the trail does get away from society a bit. "Shadow Run" is a lot of fun, feels like a pump track in places.

Overall very fun ride, check it out if nearby. The park does have a pricey fee of $7.00/day, so make the most of it if you come.

Review: On my second visit, I rode Shadow and Cliffside, as an out and back. I'm still impressed with Shadow. It's rated as easy and could be riden by a raw beginner, but it's just so full of flow and + camber turns and pump, that almost anybody can love riding it. Started counter clock wise and it was fun but I'd say it flows better and bermed more for clock wise, which ends in a grand but not too technical down hill and one last big berm that shoots out into the exit to parking. :D Cliff side still gnarly and fun with a good sence of exposure. Water wasn't much flowing at the falls, I'd like to see that. and It rides well both ways.

Review: Rode Grandview trail for my first time. Love the trail. Lots of flow and yet the uphill sections seemed moderate. I rode it clockwise coming off of Creekside trail. GV trail is marked well and easy to follow. I did NOT care for Creekside all that well. Lots of loose (small) rock on most of trail. Very rough ! One small tree top across the trail. But was able ride thru it on my way back. Did enjoy the scenery on GV.

Review: The folk who built this know Flow. Every part flows well. Also noticed they put in drainage every little while. Almost no tech except KILL DEVIL FALLS, and probably could of cleaned that to if I wasn't a chicken. :) They have 6 named trails on the map from gate. The only one actually difficult at all is Cliff side. Pretty Gnarly. Fun not too hard. Shadow loop made me work a little to get elevation then flowed nice all the way back with lots of burms and improved stream crossings.Grand View might be in the winter. Some of the rocks at lower elevation look OMG sharp.

Review: This trail system is a ton of fun with some tough climbs and awesome descents. There are also a lot more trail miles than listed here. I counted about 15 miles and expanding according to a park ranger I talked with. This is a definite must ride.

Review: I ride this trail every year for the 24 hour race and the 13 mile loop that they carve out is awesome. There are a few more miles as well but that loop is fast, flowy and some of the best stretch of trail I have ever ridden. The loop doesn't get old no matter how many laps we turn that night.

Review: It's actually more like 14 miles and is a very good trail system. Well maintained. Not as great as Brown County but well worth the trip.

Review: Rode this trail this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The trail was very fast in places and was suprisingly dry after all the raing we have had in the past few weeks. The loop was 13 miles due to being marked out for a race. If you have not ridden I really encourage it. There is allot of change along the course so everyone should enjoy.

Review: I rode this when it was damp but not really wet. It was slow but I think I will have to give it another try when it hasn't rained in a while. Rode almost every trail. Really fast and flowing in some parts and very flat and slow in others but its still good. Nice job HMBA but my favorite is still Brown County State Park.

Review: I rode the trails today. They were awesome, very fast and tons of funny. It was my first time mountain biking and I really enjoyed it. I had my Marin that I had just bought and it did great. It was built with beginners in mind but not built to be easy either.

Review: Road today for my first time. Good trail system. HMBA does a great job. Nice views, good singletrack. There is a waterfall crossing, gotta ride it to understand! Decent climbing, depending on what way you ride you can get most of climbing done right away and enjoy the elevation as it flows over the river. There is a color map at trailhead, I suggest plan your route early so you can ride all the trails.

Review: If the trail was posted in 2005, the description of this trail is old! There are now 9+ miles of trails that are new (as of last summer I was told) and the old trails are considered hiking only trails. There are still three loops, but to get to the outer "grand view" loop, you have to go past the "beginner" and "Center" loop. The trails were definitely built with MTBers in mind. The trails are very flowing and the forest is beautiful. Plenty of views from ridges down to the nearby lake and along streams. nothing too steep andlots of slightly off camber turns for good drainage. They put some thought into this one. One or two rocky sections, no man made obstacles, just very smoothe singletrack. No major hills so the workout is minor, but if you want to keep your speed up and find your flow, this is a great set of trails to ride. I raced out here a couple years ago and was not impressed. 8/1/2010 All the new trails they have added in the last 3 years or so are great. The set of trails is better than my original rating for the area. Gets a 4 now... Nice work guys/gals!

Review: HMBA is just getting started building trails here. The plan is to have a large network of trails for all different skill levels. Right now there is about 8 miles of singletrack that ties into some fire roads. Not real fast, a lot of gradual climbing going out.
