Review: I may have gotten lost along the way but you need to know this turns into a horse trail and much of it is not rideable. Lot of hike a bike slogging through mud holes and over downed trees. My cell GPS did not work and I came out of the woods 7 miles from the parking lot. I do not recommend riding in the back country here.

Review: Good beginner trails that can be covered in a few hours. Good flow, nothing very technical that I recall. Trails are kept up well and I didn't see any litter!

Review: Good intermediate trail. North loop is less advanced with more flow. South loop more technical with a few small rock gardens. Rolling hill terrain with minor climbs.

Review: Wide, fast and flowy. Not much elevation change. It's kinda like a really long pump-track. Nothing real technical

Review: This is my second review. It had been a couple years since I rode here last. The trails are in great shape. There is evidence of recent trail work. This is a fast and flowy trail. There are no significant climbs, yet somehow there are plenty of downhill runs. If I lived closer I would go more often. ** NOTE: Depending on which direction you are driving to the trail, you should call ahead to see if the ferry boat is in operation. It is a 45 minute reroute if the ferry is not operating.

Review: Really fun, fast trail. A little more technical on the south loop, which is fun.

Review: Probably the best mountain biking trail we have ever ridden. We had a ball here there are lots of up and down plus allot of gentle turns. Getting to the trail on the gravel path is a good warmup and cool down. More technical on the south loop due to rocks. Loved it!!

Review: My favorite trail. I take my 10 year old riding on this trail. We love that there are obstacles (South Loop is our fav) an the trail is smooth and fast. Like another rider commented, you can make this trail as easy or difficult as you want. There are bridges, rock formations, hills an it's beautiful there. We make all right turns and the trail seems to run faster.
