Review: I am getting a bit philosophical here, but this trail really made me think "what is it I look for in a trail?" There is nothing particularly technical about this trail, nor anything that makes you think you might face imminent injury. But I get super-hyper technical at home in Markham, FL, and I can face all the imminent injury I can handle at Santos, FL. Epic, well known trails like Pisgah- where I have also ridden can do both those things, and are, I guess epic partially for that reason. And I love Pisgah. A place like Pisgah represents a massive challenge, and sometimes that's what I want in a ride and a trail. But THIS trail was some of the most fun I have had on a mountain bike. I have ridden all over Florida, Alabama, Dupont and Pisgah, and over at Tanasi. This was fun in a XC way, with less downhill fun than those bigger downhills. There is plenty of climbing here, but none of it requires a granny ring or hike a bike, as some parts of Tanasi (down the street) required of me, but its more than enough to get the legs burning and lungs pumping. I rode this as an out and back from the trailhead, and may have interacted with the Boyd's gap trail as well- it was hard to tell, though you never feel lost. The views are fantastic, with the lake below you, small wooden bridges over streams coming down the hill, quiet forest. The best part? I give this trail 5 stars because the ride back in was so fast, and so fun. Along with views, trail is quiet, well maintained, nice banks in the switchbacks and turns. If your looking for about 11-14 miles of pure fun, this was it, and we all loved it.

Similar Trail: Less climbing than DuPont or Coldwater and less downhill as well, but similar flow.

Review: Not a bad trail at all. I gave it a 4 because I have been riding all over the country and if the top stuff is a 5 then this is not that close. Fast, flowing with decent scenery

Review: Great ride. Flowing and fast. Lots of leaves and wet but in great shape. Word of warning, this is an active hunting area so please wear bright colors.

Review: This trail is really fast if you have the legs for it. Very fun pedaling as hard as you can picking up speed threw all the turns.. Best way is from Boyds gap parking lot towards the highway bridge.

Review: I really like this trail. Beautiful setting. Seems well maintained. You can really pick up speed on some sections. There was a rattle snake in the middle of the trail. A first for me.

Review: Ran the trail from the bridge at hwy 40 to Boyd Gap out and back. All in 13.4 miles. Great running trail, rolling hills, bikers must love it. Fast, smooth, flows well. I'll definitely come back for another time thru.
