Not bad little trail system. No big elevation gain or loss but not bad flow for a hike/bike trail. Maps available at the state park website.

Nice trail system for beginners with some roots and short climbsThank |
nice easy trailThank |
This is a great place to teach new MTBers the basics of riding. It is double track trail and some of the trail is crushed stone and other parts are dirt. There are a few short climbs that some some roots and small rocks, so new riders will get a good feel for climbing. This is not a place for experienced single track shredders, but if you have kids or significant other that you want to introduce to riding in the woods, this is a great place. You are almost never more than 0.5 of a mile from a trailhead, so there are tons of options for loops and rides of any length. Watch out for hikers coming in both directions.Thank |
This trail has a good flow. It can be ridding in any direction but watch out for hikers the trail heads star hard cause of a 3-5% climb but after that great flowThank |
