A good mix of Singletrack and some fire lanes. Park at Foxey Hollow and follow loop clockwise

    Trails were in good shape overall. The rain has changed a lot of the creek/ditch crossings so use caution. There were also a couple of good sized trees down

    Track is closed due to timbering large trees lie across the trail. As of this post it has been that way since October 2015.

    There are some very steep and difficult climbs in this trail network so bring your climbing legs. It is somewhat of a fun trail, but it isn't anything too special.

    Some of the local guys have been busy making improvements to the trail. The loop is now around 10 miles and a couple of the really hard climbs have been rerouted a little. However it is still a tough little trail on the lungs and the climbs are tough. Nothing technical but you must be in shape to enjoy it. It is a great test to see where your conditioning is at different points of the year.

    This is a super fun trail with several tough climbs. Not a fun trail for true beginers.
