Review: Was a fun ride on this trail!! Couldn't do the whole loop because of the creek being to deep. 8.8 miles on the loop we did and twice around was good for this day. The down hills are fun and fast and the climbing isn't bad but a few spots. I found myself smiling a lot on this trail. I'll be back!!!

Review: Rode this trail with my son this past Tuesday. It's a good one. 80 % of it is either going up or going down; it is southern Indiana after all. We took our time; ended up walking the bikes up some pretty steep leg-busters(no switch backs whatsoever like we were used to) and then were rewarded with some long downhills(straight down w/little or no winding). Lots of both dry and wet rocky creek-bed crossings. Total ride time was 3hrs and 15 minutes -could easily drop an hour off that time by not stopping at the cemeteries and being more vigorous throughout. We plan to ride all the HNF trails -checked this one off the list.

Similar Trail: First HNF trail for us -unlike any other MTB trail we have ridden. We are newbies.

Review: Rode several years ago. It is one of the many trails in Hoosier National Forest. Some singletrack sections but mainly double track. Several tough climbs and we rode it clockwise. If you like old school rugged trails you will enjoy it.
