Review: I rode this yesterday and had a mixed experience. Some sections of the trails are still muddy and boggy, so I had to walk alot of those. But it is early in the season, so I'm sure it will dry out and be better. There was a little rain earlier in the day, and the rest of the trail was pretty tough as a result. There are alot of snaking trails through tight sections with plenty of roots. Needless to say, you have to take it pretty slow when things are wet and slick.

I also parked in the wrong place to hit the good trails right away, in the pavilion and picnic area off of 259. It seems like the best parts of the singletrack are between Campground Rd and Hoffman Rd, and to the West of Hoffman. If I ever get a chance to come back, I would park on Hoffman Rd and hit the areas to the West to start, instead of the low areas by the pavilions.

Most of my time was on the Simpson Trail, and I didn't make it to the Billygoat or Damsite trails because of a flat.

Review: Yellow Creek is a trail that encompasses a lot of what makes mt. biking fun. Technical lines, pump trail sections, tricky descents, heart busting climbs, water, flats, rollers, pines. Have fun. It's basically a loop around the lake that is about 15 miles. They also hold an Exterra Off Road Tri over the summer that uses the trail system also. Check it out.
