Review: This was the first true mountain bike trail I ever rode, with a rented mtn bike while on vacation. I caught the bug and ride this anytime I am in the area. There are a few (maybe 500 yds out of 6.8 miles) of technical stuff - rocks and roots - you need to make or you are sliding off the trail. First time I rode I thought I was gonna die - heat & humidity. Just rode it twice while on vacation last week and killed it ... twice. Be aware that this is two-way singletrack so as you come screaming around a blind corner you may make a new mtb biking friend that is screaming around the same corner from the opposite direction. From trailhead runs 6.8 miles to Boyd Gap Overlook and then on the same end of the parking lot but on the other side you can take Boyd Gap trail which is high-speed, rocky downhill, then up the raft put-in road back to Boyd Gap and back to the trailhead ... about 15 miles. Fun, flowy and tight but lots of fun!!! Will ride this every time I'm in the area. In fact, as we left to come back to TX, I stopped at the trailhead and walked down 50 feet or so just as a remembrance of the fun.

Review: My favorite trail ever. Fun, relaxing, beautiful. Fast and flowy. Views of the river, wildlife spottings, zooming through the forest. It doesn't get better!

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: Flowy trail with lots of speed. I've ridden this trail 50 times or more and it never gets boring.

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.
