I found this to be a Jekyll and Hyde trail system. The good stuff was great, but the not so good stuff, which was plentiful, was a huge distraction. Other than the Ojibwa trail, the bulk of the system is largely uninteresting. The area has done a great job building trails for everyone (hikers, cyclists, classic and skate skiers, ATVs) into this area, but the various trail types are constantly criss-crossing each other and the frequent double bulldozer width ski trail intersections disrupt the flow and the feeling of remoteness. The trails are exceptionally well marked -- if you're a skier. If you get off the singletrack as a cyclist, you may have some difficulty finding it again. After exploring the area, I was happy just to focus on laps on the Ojibwa trail, which is not as difficult as the black rating given it, but still bobs and weaves through the woods in a wonderful way for most of its length.
