There is a trail map available at the park check-in. There is a fork in the trail within a half mile of crossing riverside drive. There is a 2.5 mile loop that splits off from the trail to the right and back to the trail (if you go to the left you will take the 3.1 mile loop only).

    I have not ridden this trail in 8 or so years. Took off work early and the long way to stop and it did not disappoint. For what ever reason I have always liked this place as it has a very unique feel as you ride it. Thank you to whom keeps this place maintained.

    I ride it any chance I get, but it's also just a 10 minute drive for me. I recommend starting at Steven's point, the trail starts and ends very nice-like from that trailhead whichever the daily rotation may be. Red days(S,M,W,F) are easier and funner than yellow days(Tues,Thurs,Sat) IMO. A couple of steep, rooty, and challenging climbs on yellow days, but the reward is a Quick, bermy downhill when your almost back to Steven's point.
    It's also a lot of fun/workoutish, on yellow days, to start at Steven's point and then when you hit the *intersection* head uphill and back west towards Steven's point, where you'll find the best berms on this trail, IMO.
    *Watch out for the occasional sand traps and 'boulders'*

    Getting back to the woods after 20 yrs. Picked up a Fatboy and just hit this Sunday, 12/20. The sun was out, temps in the 40's, it was Awesome! One other person arrived as I was leaving. The trail was easy to follow, minimal leaf coverage, plenty wide and well maintained. Lots of variety, you could rip through it or just cruise based on personal preference. Overall, great trail, great time and I will head back soon.

    It's October so the leaves are getting deep on the trail...this makes it so one can not see roots/rocks and makes the ride less fun. Trail is challenging enough though to keep it interesting...will be back.

    I decided to ride this trail as I was driving past from another ride. Trail was ok but not very technical. There were a couple of interesting sections but not really enough to draw me back again. My favorite part was getting stuck in a rain storm for 30 minutes and stayed dry under a picnic awning where I was able to catch a cat nap while listening to the rain fall around me.

    In the first few miles of this trail I was wishing I had gone somewhere else to ride. It was a thin singletrack with weeds up to my handlebars. I felt like I was blazing my own trail. After awhile I found that there was some trail maintenance going on and maybe they just had not gotten to the first section yet. The further I rode the more I liked the trail. Not a lot of technical riding, but a fun ride with a veriety of landscapes. There are a lot of rocks and roots in the trail that are hard to see in some areas, so stay in your toes.
