Review: A place this massive is best discovered with a guide, because the good trails are often difficult to identify. There is a lot of branches and stuff down on the less populated trails

Review: Great trails, good hills, and lots of intermediate trails, not so technical but if you head up to the top near the observation tower theres great steps to come down and go up.

Review: I agree Coon Hollow path is one of the best trails in the park. Be prepared for A LOT of technical downhill starting from the tower up by the weather observatory. DO NOT take the blue trail next to the Coon Hollow. It says no bikes and for good reason. You will be walking the bike down, or be in for a lot more than you may have bargained for. No mater what you do, hikers are going to look at you like you are crazy on either trail.

Review: Many view this park as being mostly XC with a predominant proportion of the trails being double track or fire road. I would agree but there are a couple of trails cut that over some great technical downhills.

Review: This is a great place to ride. its very bumpy, but lots of fun. I recomend coon hollow path as a starting point. it starts at the castle at the top of great blue and ends at the street. you get like 350+ feet of downhill, very fun stuff. this is a video of me on coon hollow path (cut and paste)

Review: Yellow and white loops are nice and well marked. Kinda love the yellow loop. The initial uphill sucks so I recommend a warm up loop around the pond. Good up and down hill on yellow. White is less fun to me but put the 2 together for a nice 11.5-12 mile ride. All fire road but singlerack branches off if you want to explore. Rode 10/8 - There were 3 deadfalls across the yellow trail a couple feet off the ground last time I rode. Pleasantly surprised to find them removed
