Trail Description
About this trail
This trail starts off on rocky terrain crossing a long wood bridge . The first 3/4 mile is pretty technical on big rock , some uphill , downhill challenges , and creek bed crossings . The trail turns to dirt and rock . It also splits giving you a choice on how you want to ride this trail . It hooks back up about 1 mile deeper into the woods . One trail follows the prairie and the other follows the west side of the northeast cove of Toronto Lake. About 3 1/2 miles on the trail you will come to a concrete low water bridge that takes you to the east side of the cove . This side has more open prairie trail that will split twice along the way . this will let you see every inch of this trail . You have some technical uphill and downhill trail along with some rugged large rocky terrain . You will ride the whole length of the cove and some of the base of the lake before turning around and heading back. This trail is good for fast riding and testing your technical skills . Come on out and give it a ride .

Review: Very poor MTB trail. Obviously not groomed or maintained. Likely an old deer trail. At best it's a decent hiking trail but the yellow section is so poorly marked you can lose it if you don't pay attention. Don't go out of your way for this one. Try Iola's trail system 30 miles east instead. Much better and well groomed.

Review: The beginning of this trail is pretty rugged . The large red rocky hills and creek beds are a challenge on a bike . Some you can't ride at all . This trail needs big time maintenance . The heavy rains we had this summer really tore up the creek crossings and downed some trees . Most of the trail is in good shape. The trail turns to dirt and some rock . Great for cruising and having fun . There are some technical climbs and downhill challenges to keep you from getting board . This trail could have been layed out better so you could see more of the bluffs on the east side . Still a fun ride overall .
