I rode this trail for the first time last week, I was expecting a lot of sand. I was wrong. This trail is well maintained, hard packed black dirt. It is open with very few tight spots. It has a few moderate climbs but the long flow sections that followed were well worth it. We rode it clockwise and only one time so we were much slower than normal as we didn't know what was around the corners. I highly recommend this trail to anyone in the area. A full suspension is not needed, however i wouldn't recommend a rigid bike. Even a beginner could safely navigate this trail...There is 1 party store in Arcadia as far as we know and it doesn't open until 8 a.m. and has a very limited selection If you need water or fuel, get it before you head to the trail.
