Horse trails...not marked well at all. Trees down every 50 ft. Terrible.Thank |
The scenery is the real draw for this trail. From the parking lot at the CCC shelter I was a bit confused with the signage. Once I found my way the trail up to the bluff was not bad considering parts are shared with horses. Once you cross the gravel road and ride on the edge of the bluff the real fun begins. Scenes of the valley are worth the ride. In the fall and winter you will be able to take in the view even more.Thank |
This trail has POTENTIAL! The first section of the trail is a subtle climb through the woods. There is lots of loose rock and stumps to contend with. The second section of the trail is incredible! It is a tight trail the hugs the edge of the bluff. The scenery is incredible! The trail could be fast if you are brave enough! The third section the trail is where it starts to looks points. This section was shared with a horse riding trail and has several deep and muddy trenches to deal with. There were a couple of 20 foot sections I had to walk my bike to to huge horse made trenches. If it were drier it might not be an issue. The forth section of this trail actually goes out to a gravel road. This is fun and fast and winds through the woods. There are a few climbs and decent descent that make this section fun. You could opt to go back along the edge of the bluff but this is single track and might be a problem if you encounter another rider. The final leg is really nice! After doubling back through a short section of horse trail you go into a nice flowing section. This could be fast and has some nice drop offs and small hops to navigate! This could easily be a SOLID 4 or 5 star trail if it wasn't for a section of trail that is shared with horses. Overall it is must ride if you are in the area as I really enjoyed it!Thank |
