Trail Description
About this trail
A fireroad travels through the area. There are two main singletracks off the fireroad and a few small ones. The trails are tight singletrack and twist through trees with little to no elevation change. If you find the lake, be prepared for dirty water and a rancid smell.

Review: This is a nice ride, no real elevation change and lots of sharp twisting turns. It was scenic in the fall, not well marked but easy to follow. Not very fast or challenging but good for beginners.

Review: This was my first time on a mountain bike since I was a kid (and hadn't done nearly this level of riding back then). There were three trails, gaining in difficulty as you went. Loop 1 was easy and short, 2 was a little more difficult, and 3 was pretty long with lots of tight trees, turns, short hill climbs, and optional log piles. There are also gravel roads and two-tracks here to explore on, but you may encounter vehicle traffic.

Review: Twisty singletrack through dense woods. Not difficult, not fast, mostly flat with some small hills, (more like dirt mounds) but a fun trail nonetheless. Adrenaline junkies should look elsewhere. Great trail to take your newbie friends or kids. Beautiful wooded area.

Review: A lot of people whine about this trail, but it is a really fun little system once you get the hang of it. It has 3 loops that offer different riding options: The north loop is fun and super fast, then there is the first south loop that has log piles throughout and is really fun, then the 2nd south loop which is the longer of the 3 loops and is a lot of fun to ride and has a nice berm/wallride up and around a tree. Granted, it's not a big destination trail to go check out, it still offers a day of fun riding. Could use a little better signage, so keep an eye out for trail indicators or you'll end up on the horse trails.

Review: Worth a ride! Definitely a unique area for the locale. Sandy, but a few technical ruts and small climbs. Nothing that would give mtb thrill, but the scenery and unique birch savanna and river bayou sites will be rewarding!

Review: Did not ride. Turned back after hunters were spotted. No signs to indicate hunting area. Be warned!

Review: Flat and windy. Hard to build any speed. Good for a beginner or if you are close by with your bike and want to pedal a bit. Wouldn't go out of my way to bike here. Hard to get the heart rate up. Don't stop too much or the deer flies will attack.

Review: Really enjoyed it actually...definitely not a major workout but a fun, tight trail with several log piles. Would do it again.
