Awesome trails cross and follow the steep conours of this open space preserve. Every combination, from smooth, sweeping, fast and wide trails to arduous single track with roots, rocks and lots and lots of hairpins. One of my favorites is Resolution trail, probably the the best single track I've riden. It is so good that last time I visited I went down one way, turned around and went right back up. On a hard-tail some of these trails are tougher but then I enjoy a challenge. Other recommendations are Methusala, a long and varied ride, and Fir, for it's fast, steep descents. If you park at Skeggs Point, the only minor gripe I can think of is that you start at the top, descend and then have to cycle back up - personally I prefer to 'earn' the downhill. I guess if you park at Star Hill Road then you can climb first but then I haven't tried it. All in all this is highly recommended.
