    I don't know if I couldn't find it or it's just completely grown over. But there really wasn't a trail. There was maybe a ghost of a trail that was there a few years ago.

    Tried to ride this trail a few days ago. Seems to be abandoned. Several trees down and very overgrown. The access across the creek has changed apparently due to some high water and it is more difficult to get across to the singletrack. Is anyone out there still riding this trail?

    2 mile technical loop, four small drycreek crossings, fast downhills and steep up hills. I ride it a couple of times a week. its in town so its very convenient to hop on the bike and smash out a couple of laps. Its only about 1/4 mile from my house.

    Nice new singletrack that uses the terrain pretty well. Rocks were allowed to remain in the tread which makes it more interesting. The only drawbacks are the short distance and some of the longer climbs/descents are too much on the fall line and will likely erode in the next few years, especially if usage increases.
