    Great spot, awesome features and very well maintained. However, the area is very hard to navigate and the markers are too subtle in some areas.

    One of the best trails I've been to. To the right is my favorite trails where their flowy and some steep drops and awesome corkscrew. To the left is more harder trails where planning your line really comes in key. There are some fallen trees and some are now features. Once in a while there will be people walking their dogs/ hiking, however they are nice and move out of your way.

    Great ride! Once you get away from the lake, lots of down hill action on the other side!

    I just wanted to publicly thank the person responsible for getting out here and working on the trails. Flows much better now that a lot of the fallen trees have been cut.

    It is a really great place some sections with amazing flow some good jumps sometimes it was hard to follow the trail just stay at a high area and you will avoid all of the mud in lower areas

    This place has changed a lot since I was last here in 2011. There are some great, and not so great trails. Lots of roots and mud depending on which trails you go on. Hasn't been maintained as well as it used to be, but still a very enjoyable ride.

    Great beginner trail. I wish I had more time to explore. We did 10 miles and I know we didn't hit everything. I did like the sections closest to the golf course. Keeping the golf course on my right.

    When it's has not rained for about two days place rules. Some fun elev. changes and great fun features. It's had its heyday some years ago but then some insane hiker started putting random obstructions in crazy parts of the trails to block bikes. Down right dangerous and I stopped going for a while. Place has potential to be great again.

    Only my second time trail riding on my new bike. First time at this park. Parked off Pitman Rd and Jefferson Rd. Nice parking lot but sandy, and for others like me with OCD not good mixture for oil and grease in the cogs. I think it will be a great place to ride once I understand the markings. In some areas there are red arrows on the trees, some areas have green, and some pink(unless that's just really old red). Tried to follow the markings and they just stopped. Kind of left me hanging. I did find a loop back and then found the glorious "roller coaster" sign. THAT was super fun. I road a couple of miles before I just got frustrated with trying to find a marked trail. I will try it again. As a new rider, I will tell you that the roots on the trail are a tough to manage. Plus, some of the logs that were cut must have been done by tiny gnomes because they didn't leave much room between them, not for a 6 foot 250lbs dude on a 29er. The hills climbs are short but tough because of the roots. And oh, one hill, was soft dirt, like trying to pedal up peat moss.:-(
    So, I would recommend it to novice and up riders, especially if you'll be able to do it more than just once.

    Finally got the chance to ride Ceres last evening. Great place to ride. I was lucky to meet up with 2 guys who were experienced in this park and they led me on a fantastic tour. Entered on the Pitman side. Some broken glass not far from the trail head place by the local person I hear has been sabotaging the place. What a shame. Hopefully someone will catch him in the act. Highly recommend this place. I am a beginner this year and I got a great work out. Thanks Matt and Mike, if I remember the names.

    would you just park on the side of the road or is there a lot close by?

    Well, I just do not like this place. I have tried...multiple times. I just cannot get into it. It seems that it goes from waaaaay too easy to double diamond advanced in a few feet. Doesn't seem too well thought out. It is poorly maintained and all of the man-made stuff is trashed. Just not a fan.

    Overgrown and definitely not the same without the man made obstacles and bridges for the streams .

    With all the rain this summer there are a bunch of muddy soft spots.

    I am on vacation and this trail was recommended to me but I was disappointed in what I found. It didn't seem like there were very many options in trails as I did several loops in 25 minutes with the trails being very easy. Many sections were overgrown and a couple of trails dead ended on me and I had to turn around. I wanted to leave a go to another park if I had enough time.

    Undecided about this one. The trails can go from easiest to hard within 1/4 mile. There are some good beginner-intermediate spots, but generally this place is for intermediate-advanced.

    Beginners can ride here, but due to the varying trail difficulty expect to be off the bike as much as on.

    Very wet usually, not kept up well, and some built obstacles look shoddy.

    If you're close, it's good to go, if not you're better off somewhere else. Any drive over 30 minutes wouldn't get my recommendation.
