Trail Description
About this trail
I only found about this trail over the internet (MtbR). It measures out 4-4.5 miles according to the builders. The entire trail is a combo of singletrack and fire road. It looks like the builders are working on even more, too. The first section of singletrack weaves around into a good, looooonnng climb onto some doubletrack. Eventually this turns into the first section of tight, weaving singletrack. Just like the other trails in this area, it goes up and down pretty rapidly. Be careful, as some of the bench cut sections are hard-packed yet, and riding the edge can definitely lead to a wash-out. The first section ends at the top of a hill which turns into an awesome fire-road downhill - big rings all the sure to have a grip on the brakes cause you make an immediate left onto more singletrack. The second section gets a little more technical. The trail rises and falls a little more dramatically, but the ride is smooth. There are some good technical areas that will test you, too: some monster roots, a large log pile and some neat drops. The whole trail is built on a relatively small piece of land, but the way the builders used the entire landscape is admirable. The last fire road leads into the most awesome section of singletrack. After weaving through some pines, you enter a hilltop section that weaves you in and out of some awesome rock gardens. you need to be on your toes, 'cause the rocks are big, jagged and can pitch in a second. The last big climb is a technical rider's dream : a monster climb with rocks on all sides and some places that require a little bit of creative pedaling. It all ends after that climb as you exit back out at the parking lot...

Review: My local, I like it a lot. It was very overgrown with briars, willow and wild grape vines but as of today I walked the first ~3 miles, to the big bridge, and used lopping shears to clean up the path. I will try to finish the second half soon. Will make it way more fun.

Review: Nice and clear, no trees, all leaves have been blown and the trail is tacky and fast. New enter/exit signs have been installed and the trail is nicely marked. Let it rip!

Review: Still a good little trail. Maintained nice. Not sure why someone said it was overgrown but its almost 7 miles depending on what recording device you use. Some leaves down now but still nice. Has a few bridges to keep it fun. For sure not a beginner course. Intermediate would be best. Great workout. Bathrooms, water, night riding, fat tires are also aloud.

Review: Pretty fun trail lots of short climbs and short decents. Smooth terrain for the most part a couple of fun obstacles. Not a bad ride if your close by but definitely wouldn't go out of your way to get here.

Review: Better than ever! 6.6 miles, 2 new bridges and a rock ladder at the end. Fast as of 7/2014 and the one lap record is 29 min but don't let that fool you, that's at a 10 MPH average. Most "fast" riders turn it in 35 min. Good flow, 3 new sections. Handles all abilities but I think its more technical than a "beginner" course.
