    Great rock gardens with some serious chunk. Pretty well marked and very challenging. Rode here for 4 hrs with the last hour ridden with a bent chain ring. Had some nice log piles and skinnys as well as rock features that were a lot of fun. Some trails were not marked very well but it loops so not that hard to follow.

    Has a mixed bag of challenges. Up hills, most short and manageable. Lots of rocks. Just enough to keep you on the bike and be a significant challenge. My first time here, will come back and I'm sure it will be more fun with the knowledge gained today. Well maintained.

    I would give it five stars, but there is work to be done... Going back in a few days with an entrenching tool and hatchet to build it up a bit.

    Great for after work. I would usually spend about an hour and there may be a little more time needed todouble back some of the trails. Over all ...... well-maintained and others are little flaky but when you're around a mountain bike into the woods you should always be fun overall the course is a little bit on the small side but I am definitely is worth the effort

    This trail has some really well maintained parts, but others are hard to ride over. Access is great, there's a decent crushed rock lot where there's ample parking.

    The first day out we started doing the white trail, but ended up going off on the orange tape trail when we found it. The orange tape was the most fun, there were some great switchbacks and almost all of it was really well maintained. Lots of trees were cut to un-block the trail... the only knock against this were there were a couple spots where it was kinda narrow and I had to slow down to not hit anything.

    The white square trail is good, but a lot of it we couldn't ride. The part you encounter right from the trailhead is good, there's a cool cutout of a tree that you can ride under. Lots of access to fire trails to go in between stuff too.

    This was only my first visit and it seems like there's still more to explore, we will definately be going back though!
