    Fun trail, I just wish it was one direction! Well maintained, some fun technical areas. Sometimes I ride from here through the paved path up to Riverbends

    Nice trail, to too harsh. Trails need to be marked better.

    Short, Easy, a couple of root drop spots but nothing to worry about for 95% of folks, poorly marked, especially at the beginning. This is a really great trail for getting used to your first single track experience.

    Short but fun ride! Good flow

    Use this as a warm up and ride to riverbends after!

    Quite a few very muddy spots as of 5/12/17

    I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. Well marked, well maintained flat trail with lots of turns and a couple technical spots that you can either hit or go around. Nice work

    Do this and then do Riverbends in the same ride!

    I have not ridden in more than a few years. I used to ride this area a lot. This trail is based around trail that has been back in those woods for a long time. I must say I am extremely impressed with the work CRAMBA has done with these local trails. Anyway, since I have decided to start riding again, I have ridden riverbends and that is awesome( that did not exist last time I rode) I decided to hit up this trail and didn't know what to expect. Well with all the little bridges, skill obstacles, and banked turns this trail is really kind of fun. So I joined CRAMBA after two rides and if you are not a member I recommend it because there is a huge difference in trail quality from when I used to ride and now.

    Good trail pretty fast pase. Nothing a beginner can't handle any mild man made obstacles are avoidable not many climbs, but overal a quick fun trail. When I round it was dry (which was Dec 5th).

    Fun, no climbs. Would be 4 stars but it is so often wet that you can't ride. Do two laps for about a 10 mile ride. The entire place is along a river bed and is quite literally a swap (think cattails, mosquitoes - dont stop!, and a low water table). Remember to get some speed by the baseball diamond and launch over the cement path.

    First time here and was only able to ride the paved portion as it was too wet. Really nice trail can't wait to hit the singletrack after it dries out. Will post again after I do.

    I've only ridden the southern end of the trail as the northern end was too muddy for me to bother with at the time. Great little trail, easy riding for beginers, nothing too challenging.
