Review: A fun trail with plenty of miles for a good work-out. It has a few interesting technical root sections and tight turns that are fun to carry with speed. Overall it's an easy trail that had a better than expected flow and feel given its location in Chicago suberbia. The biggest negative is the two way way traffic on a busy trail that lead to numerous stressful blind corners and forced a slower pace.

Review: A little tacky, and muddy in a few spots. But overall a nice and easy ride.
