Review: Lots of roots but there are some nice tight turns and a few obstacles over logs and a muddy area. Many of the fallen trees have been cut making the trail clear

Review: Any word on the trail post Irma? Last I saw the county park was closed. Would like to help out if I can (might have some others interested as well) in cleaning up the trail and possible improving it.

Review: So I ride and work on the trail. As others have said, avoid during summer due to flora and fauna. I'm not going out there and neither should you! This is a seasonal trail.From late October or early December to April/May is optimal. Hurricane Mathew did some damage, but everything is good now. This trail rewards faster riders, but is easy enough for beginners. The "jumps" are gone, but they weren't really jumps anyways. Just follow my simple rule, after hitting 3 spiders, turn around and go to Jekyll!

Review: Was a fun little trail, I live here locally and will hit the trail a couple times a month during the cooler season. The trail is infested with banana spiders during the summer making it virtually unrideable. However as of now the trail is unridable due to the lack of upkeep and recent hurricane damage. I haven't rode her since before summer and the trail already needed work, however it was rideable and had a few really fun sections for what it is. Since the hurricane those sections have been washed out and are now nothing but overgrown piles of loose dirts. The trail itself is covered in branches and fallen trees as newly grown vegetation. If they do decide to clear the trail I would recommend a rebuild to attract more riders being its the only one within 2 hours of any other real trails. There is plenty of space and potential for an awesome trail and some cool wood obstacles and such to be added (skill sections). As of recent also they actually removed a whole section of the trail and layer waste to the land it was on. It needs to be rebuilt for sure or Brunswick needs a new place to ride :(

Review: Still overgrown:( looks like it was a fun trail at some point. A lot of time and money has been put into it; signage, berms, jumps, and even mountain bike parking. But now it's gone to crap. Trail is littered with giant spiders, ticks, and snakes. Has a ton of potential and a lot of room to add more trail.

Review: Overgrown, spiders, some dilapidated log rollovers. Has potential but needs a lot of TLC. Better signage would help. Found myself trying to find myself some of the time.

Review: The trails are not maintained for bikes. There are mainly old people hikers and that's about it. We got lost after trying to find the "jumps" which was just a small pump track. people there are nice but not the bike terrain. It is mainly a camp ground and if you want to experience Georgia for the first time then this is fine. I probably wont go again though. I was expecting something funner.

Review: Singletracks reviewers don't lie! I thought the intermediate tech rating on this trail might be a bit overblown but after riding, I can confirm these trails are tight, rooty, and NOT beginner friendly. In fact, Leah and I brought the kids (one on the Tyke Toter, the other on a trail-a-bike) and decided to stick to the doubletrack--and it's a good thing we did!

Now, the other thing I failed to pay attention to in the reviews is the mention of spiders. They were EVERYWHERE! So bad, in fact, that I cut my ride short after getting covered in webs. For a bit I rode with a stick in hand, waving it like Harry Potter's wand in front of me, hoping to snag the webs ahead and make the spiders disappear. It didn't work. Basically anywhere two trees were less than 4 feet apart had a huge web between them. Which pretty much meant the entire trail. I can still feel the sticky webs on my skin days later.

Review: When I rode this trail, it wasnt very well maintained. It had a lot of wash out and a bunch of downed trees over the trail. The one thing I did like is the freindly atmosphere.
